Ropetackle Film Club: Heat and Dust
A triumph of charm, complexity and hidden depths.
Cutting across two generations, director James Ivory’s sprawling epic of self-discovery is an evocation of the prismatic and sensuous beauty of India. As she searches for answers to the riddle surrounding a long-ago affair between her Great-aunt Olivia (Greta Scacchi) and an Indian Nawab (Shashi Kapoor), Anne (Julie Christie) becomes immersed in the local culture, the pull of the past leading her to a clearer view of her own future.
