The White Countess

Synopsis:

In this final collaboration between legendary producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory, China provides the backdrop for this drama of exile, longing and love's triumph over adversity, written by the prize winning author Kazuo Ishiguro.

The White Countess takes place in the glamorous, corrupt and boomtown atmosphere of 30s Shanghai that is soon to be swept away by advancing Japanese armies and civil war. At its center is the blind American diplomat Todd Jackson played by Ralph Fiennes and Sofia Belinskaya played by Natasha Richardson, a refuge Russian aristocrat making a living in a taxi dancehall and as an occasional prostitute. Jackson, aided by his mysterious Japanese friend, the spy Matsuda (Hiroyuki Sanada), opens a successful nightclub and installs the countess Sofia as its centerpiece.

In the spectacular mass exodus from the city which is the climax of the film, Sofia is abandoned by her in laws, played by the Redgrave sisters, Vanessa and Lynn, who secretly try to flee with Sofia's small daughter, Katya.
