As early as its opening-credit sequence, this interpretation of Henry James’s masterwork insinuates a modern, tactile, and perceptive vision that is entirely Jane Campion’s. Nicole Kidman stars as the resolute young American, Isabel Archer, who rejects a proposal from her English cousin (Richard E. Grant) and falls prey to the schemes of two American expatriates, the independent and worldly Madame Merle (Barbara Hershey) and Gilbert Osmond (John Malkovich), a dilettante artist with little means but enough cunning to woo Isabel. Sumptuously photographed and exceedingly smart, The Portrait of a Lady is a cinematic fever dream fascinated by the pictorial and sensuous forms of dominance within James’s text, and the inextricable bond between romantic love and violence.
Special thanks to Ella Sahlman for curating the playlist.
This screening is part of our free weekly double features this summer to celebrate Film at Lincoln Center’s 50th anniversary.
