2015. 104 minutes.

In 1850 NYC, an impoverished man courts a young woman with no social standing, but holds the promise of a mother’s inheritance and a wealthy father. Dramatically and emotionally compelling, the innocent girl must decide whether the young man is pursuing her for love or for money alone. Maggie Smith plays her chaperone and steals the film in another standout performance.
