Blending East with West, and moving effortlessly between the vibrant world of modern-day India and the magnificent splendors of the Raj, Merchant Ivory Productions’ acclaimed Heat and Dust follows the contemporary story of Anne (Julie Christie), a young woman drawn to India by her desire to unravel a mysterious family scandal surrounding the seduction of her great-aunt Olivia (Greta Scacchi) in the 1920s by a handsome and charismatic, if not entirely scrupulous, Indian prince (Shashi Kapoor). Her journey proves to be as much one of self-discovery as an opportunity to solve an enigma. Like Olivia, she too is drawn deep into India by an allure that, in a different way, has remained as sensual and romantic as it was half a century before. A Cohen Film Collection release
