Synopsis

New York at the beginning of the 20th century. Lily Bart (Gillian Anderson), a young woman looking to make a good marriage, finds herself drawn into a downward spiral when her honour and her love for Lawrence Selden (Eric Stoltz) prevent her from accepting the advances of wealthy banker Gus Trenor (Dan Aykroyd) and bring her into conflict with the social machinations of Bertha Dorset (Laura Linney). Adapted from Edith Wharton's classic novel and directed by Terence Davies, 'The House of Mirth' features an acclaimed central performance from 'X Files' star Anderson.
