Another acclaimed triumph from producer Ismail Merchant, writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala and director James Ivory, the award-winning creators of A Room with a View, Howards End and The Remains of the Day—Jefferson in Paris delivers stylish and highly provocative big-screen entertainment. Hollywood great Nick Nolte (48 Hrs.) stars with the sexy Greta Scacchi (Shattered) in this impassioned story of forbidden love. During one man’s unforgettable visit to liberal and socially permissive France, he meets and falls in love with a worldly and mysterious woman. But when the alluring charms of another prove irresistible, he finds himself courting scandal in a heated triangle of passion and desire. The stellar cast includes Jean-Pierre Aumont (Five Miles to Midnight), Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Seth Gilliam (Courage Under Fire), James Earl Jones (Field of Dreams), Michael Lonsdale (Moonraker), Nancy Marchand (TV’s The Sopranos), Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II), Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love), Charlotte De Turckheim (Birds of Passage), Lambert Wilson (The Matrix Reloaded) and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan).
