WILD STRAWBERRIES: HEAT AND DUST

Director: JAMES IVORY

134 mins, UK, 1983, Digital


This film screened on Wednesday 14th & Friday 16th August 2019. 

Reissued in digital format, this early Merchant Ivory adaptation of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s novel reminds us of the sumptuous nature of their work, and why their stylish Anglo-Indian romantic dramas were so eagerly anticipated.

Greta Scacchi is glorious as Olivia, the wife of conservative ‘district collector’ Douglas (Christopher Cazenove) in 1920s colonial India. Tracing her story from letters, her great niece Anne (Julie Christie) sets out to learn the secrets of her predecessor’s scandalous life by visiting India and retracing her steps.
