Synopsis

Kenneth Branagh plays a priest in this tangled tale of love and liberation in 1930s Boston. William Hurt plays a wealthy socialite who, on learning he is sterile, agrees to find a man to impregnate his wife, played by the beautiful Madeleine Stowe. A suitable stud is selected and he soon falls in love with the beautiful writer he is servicing. As if this were not complicated enough, a priest arrives on the scene and he soon gives new meaning to the word de-frocked.
