When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young groom named Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis) on her husband's estate, a force is unleashed inside her so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

  • 5 stars "A tragedy worthy of ancient Greece."
  • 5 stars "The period settings were great, and the plot moved along in a well-paced manner with some truly unforgettable scenes. As dark movies go, this one is well worth seeing. Check out the opera version as well, by Shostakovich."
  • 3 stars "A very dark movie, only some people may enjoy this type of movie."
