Based on the Booker Prize winning novel by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Merchant Ivory classic Heat and Dust intertwines the experiences of two young English women in India two generations apart - across the 1920s and 1980s. Anne (Julie Christie), a young historical researcher, inherits letters written by her great aunt Olivia (Greta Scacchi), and becomes obsessed with their revelation of an exotic and sensual past. Entered at Cannes in 1983 and winner of the BAFTA for Best Screenplay in the same year, Heat and Dust returns to our screens from a new restoration.
