Cross-cutting between two generations, James Ivory’s epic of self-discovery is also a lush evocation of the beauty of India. Heat and Dust tells the story of Anne (Julie Christie), who is searching for answers to the mystery surrounding a long-ago affair between her great-aunt (Greta Scacchi) and an Indian prince (Shashi Kapoor). As Anne becomes immersed in Kashmir culture, she develops a clearer view of her own future.
