Satyajit Ray's exquisite story of a woman's artistic and romantic yearning takes place in late nineteenth-century, pre-independence India, in the gracious home of a liberal-minded, workaholic newspaper editor and his lonely wife, Charulata. When her husband's poet cousin comes to stay with them, Charulata finds herself both creatively inspired and dangerously drawn to him. Based on a novella by the great Rabindranath Tagore, CHARULATA is a work of subtle textures, a delicate tale of a marriage in jeopardy and a woman taking the first steps toward establishing her own voice.

Masterful. A domestic drama, consisting of many many quiet and subtle moments, filmed (almost) entirely within the walls that confine Charulata. And such wonderful performances.
