The Age Of Innocence: The Criterion Collection (1993)
Tuesday 2nd January 2018
Martin Scorsese's lavish period piece, the achingly beautiful adaptation of the classic novel The Age Of Innocence, is released as a Criterion Blu-ray 19th March 2018 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
No filmmaker captures the grandeur and energy of New York like Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas). With this sumptuous romance, he meticulously adapted the work of another great New York artist, Edith Wharton, bringing to life her tragic novel of the cloistered world of Gilded Age Manhattan.
The Age of Innocence tells the story of Newland Archer (Daniel Day-Lewis; My Beautiful Laundrette), whose engagement to an innocent socialite (Winona Ryder; Heathers) binds him to the codes and rituals of his upbringing. But when her cousin (Michelle Pfeiffer; Dangerous Liaisons) arrives in town on a wave of scandal after separating from her husband, she ignites passions in Newland he never knew existed.
Swelling with exquisite period detail, this film is an alternately heart-breaking and satirical look at the brutality of old-world America.
