The passion, violence, mystery, and beauty of India are rapturously evoked in Merchant Ivory Productions’ acclaimed Heat and Dust, based on the novel by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and starring Julie Christie, Shashi Kapoor and Greta Scacchi. Blending east with west, and moving effortlessly between the vibrant world of modern-day India and the magnificent splendors of the Raj, Heat and Dust concerns Anne, a young woman drawn to India by her desire to unravel the scandal surrounding her great-aunt Olivia’s seduction in the 1920s by a handsome and charismatic, if not entirely scrupulous, Indian prince.
