A Film by James Ivory

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 intertwines 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). For Anne, it proves as much a journey of self-discovery as the 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.
