SCREENING

The House of Mirth

Ongoing

Dir. Terence Davies. 2000, 135 mins. 35mm. With Gillian Anderson, Eric Stoltz, Anthony LaPaglia, Laura Linney. In a career-high performance, Gillian Anderson stars in this stunning adaptation of Edith Wharton’s tragic novel, a love story set against a backdrop of wealth and social hypocrisy in turn-of-the-century New York. Lily Bart (Anderson) is a ravishing socialite at the height of her success. Conforming to social expectations she begins to seek a wealthy husband but her quest comes to a scandalous end when she is falsely accused of having an affair with a married man. A social and psychological horror story in period piece clothing, The House of Mirth is brilliantly performed, gorgeously produced, and unshakeably moving.
