Scorsese surprised many by successfully adapting (with frequent collaborator Jay Cocks) and directing a film version of Edith Wharton’s novel. Comfortably high up the 1870s New York social ladder, prosperous lawyer Day-Lewis finds himself gravitating from adoring younger fiancée Winona Ryder towards whispered-about married woman Michelle Pfeiffer. Amidst the sumptuous visuals, Gabriella Pescucci’s Oscar-winning costume design takes the breath away.
