Product description

Product Description

Baroness Eugenia Munster (Lee Remick) travels from Europe with her brother Felix (Tim Woodward) to live with her country cousins, the Wentworths, who regard Eugenia and Felix as a pair of dangerous exotics. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's script reflects the wit of Henry James' novel as Felix falls for Gertrude (Lisa Eichhorn), daughter of the family, and Eugenia embarks on a romance with Robert Acton (Robin Ellis), the district's most eligible bachelor.

From the Back Cover

Based on the Henry James classic and starring Hollywood leading lady Lee Remick (Oscar nominated for Days of Wine and Roses), The Europeans is yet another exquisite product from Merchant Ivory Productions. A witty comedy of manners, it tracks the clash between tow opposing cultures – European bohemianism versus the straight-laced society of 19th century Boston. Remick plays Eugenia, Baroness Munster, who travels from Europe with her brother, Felix (Tim Woodward, Wings, Vanity Fair) to live with her country cousins, the Wentworths, who regard Eugenia and Felix as a pair of dangerous exotics. It is a situation rich in comic possibilities and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s script perfectly reflects the wit of James’ novel as Felix falls for Gertrude (Lisa Eichhorn, Yanks, Cutter’s Way), daughter of the family, and Eugenia embarks on a romance with Robin Acton (Robin Ellis, Poldark), the district’s most eligible bachelor.

Filmed on location against a stunning backdrop of New England landscapes, The Europeans attracted a raft of prestigious nominations, including an Oscar nomination for costume designer Judy Moorcroft.
