The Age of Innocence

The Age of Innocence

This is an amazing picture. Based on Edith Wharton's novel of New York's high society of the 1870's, it is like nothing Scorsese ever did before. In this rather cold and distant society, a well-bred young man (Daniel Day-Lewis), who is set to marry a well-bred young woman (astounding performance from Winona Ryder), falls in love with a sumptuous beauty (Michelle Pfeiffer), who is in the midst of a messy divorce.

Everything, from the costumes to the minor performances, are superb. When I first went to see this, I though I'd be bored to death with yet another costume soap opera. Instead, I found a tragic love story, directed by none other than the master of gritty realism, Scorsese. Of all of Scorsese's films, I recommend this one the most, out of any of his violent urban dramas.

So long for now. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
