Summary
  • A woman, ostracized by Victorian society and abandoned by her French lieutenant lover, fascinates a man who resolves to unravel the mystery of her clandestine past
  • "Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons star as two separate pairs of lovers in this jarring, engaging and beautifully visualized film. Embraced by audiences and critics alike--and garnering five 1981 Academy Awards ... The French Lieutenant's Woman will forever remain one of the most literate, imaginative and stunning love stories ever to grace the screen. As Mike and Anna, two film actors involved in a tumultuous affair, and Charles and Sarah, the star-crossed Victorian lovers whom the actors portray, Streep and Irons are at their compelling best. Just as his character Charles' reputation is ruined by the enigmatic Sarah, Mike finds he cannot accept the intangible affections of the wily Anna. The skillful interweaving of these two love stories--one period, one contemporary--yields a fascinating insight into the passion and mystery that can pull two people together ... and just as easily tear them apart."--Container
