PG-13 | | Drama, History, Romance
Set in 1930s Shanghai, where a blind American diplomat develops a curious relationship with a young Russian refugee who works odd -- and sometimes illicit -- jobs to support members of her dead husband's aristocratic family.
The Countess' (Natasha Richardson) family included her real-life mother Vanessa Redgrave and aunt Lynn Redgrave.
We all have to fall in love from time to time... To feed our daughters, and our mothers. And sisters.
Song performed at the very beginning, when Natasha Richardson is preparing for a night out, is a Polish tango Chryzantemy zlociste (golden chrysanthemum), composed in 1939, two years later.
