Wings of the Dove


Based on the novel by Henry James. This is the story of a young woman who is 'persuaded' to marry a rich young man, so that her family may recover some of its lost wealth. She however, has other ideas, and is rather keen on a poor journalist. It seems a no-win situation until a rich American woman- terminally ill - arrives on the scene. Then the lovers hatch a plot of marrying off the poor journalist to the dying woman, in the hope that she will leave him all her money...

Nico De Beer: Good presentation, but plot not very convincingly executed.
