John Fowles’s celebrated novel is rethought by Pinter as a metamovie in which the story of a Victorian fossil-collector (Jeremy Irons) drawn into an affair with a scarlet woman (Meryl Streep) is interspersed with scenes of the making of the film in which actors Mike (Irons) and Anna (Streep) begin an affair of their own.
