Madame Bovary

Author:

Gustave Flaubert/Eleanor Marx Aveling

Synopsis:

In 1800s provincial northern France, Emma Bovary yearns for a taste of the luxury and romance she has imbibed from the popular novels she had read. Instead, married to a man with a second-rate medical degree and little ambition, and living far away from the enticements of Paris, Emma is stifled by the banality and emptiness of her existence. Desperately frustrated, she embarks upon adulterous affairs and voracious spending sprees. However, not only are her efforts to live with passion ultimately unsatisfying, but they also have devastating consequences...

Perception

Author:

Terri Fleming

Synopsis:

Mary Bennet does not dream of marriage. Unlike her younger sister Kitty, whose ambitions are to follow in the footsteps of their elder sisters, Jane and Lizzy, her hopes are simple - a roof over her head, music at the piano, a book in her hand, and the freedom not to marry the first bachelor her mother can snare for her. But Mrs Bennet has other ideas, and is determined to hear wedding bells ring for her girls. While Kitty is presented with tempting choices and left trying to resist old habits, Mary discovers that things are not always what they seem, and that happiness has a price. By the time she realises her perceptions might be false, could she have missed her chance at a future she'd never imagined?

Spencer Ludwig, idealist and filmmaker, is making one of his regular duty visits from London to New York City to tend to his declining but still fearsome father.

And, Spencer hopes, to reach a suitable cinematic conclusion.
