"Pomp, pageantry, and adventure" --Houston Chronicle
"Opulent … and glitteringly picturesque" --The Washington Post
As seen on HBO
Ben Cross (Chariots of Fire) and Amy Irving (Crossing Delancey) star in this haunting love story set against the spectacular sweep of battle, treachery, and intrigue in the India of the British Raj.
Born to British parents but raised as Indian, Ashton Pelham-Martyn returns to India as a young military officer, where he fights both local unrest and the cultural prejudices of society. Struggling to reconcile his place in two different worlds, he finds happiness with his childhood sweetheart, Indian princess Anjuli--but she is promised to marry another man. From the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas to the fabled palaces of Bhithor, M.M. Kaye’s evocative novel is brought to life in this stunning and lavish production.
The all-star cast also features Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings), Omar Sharif (Lawrence of Arabia), Rupert Everett (The Importance of Being Earnest), and Sir John Gielgud (Gandhi).
