Cross-cutting between the 1920s and the 1980s, Merchant Ivory’s epic of self-discovery, starring Julie Christie, Shashi Kapoor, and Greta Scacchi in her breakthrough role, with a strong supporting cast, is also a lush evocation of the sensuous beauty of India. Originally released in 1983, Heat and Dust returns to the big screen on 8 March 2019, beautifully restored in 4K by Cohen Media Group, New York and playing at selected cinemas UK-wide.

Heat and Dust is an adaptation of Merchant Ivory writer Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s novel, which won the 1975 Booker Prize for Fiction. It interleaves a young Englishwoman’s journey of discovery in the present-day India with a scandalous incident of family history, set in the 1920s in the Civil Lines of a backwater Indian state.

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.

Amid the contrasting landscapes of the Deccan, Kashmir and London, this film – high spirited and romantic – deals with both the colonial and ‘Indian’ India.

Heat and Dust was nominated for seven BAFTAs, with Ruth Prawer Jhabvala winning Best Adapted Screenplay. She was awarded the same accolade by the London Critics Circle Film Awards. Director James Ivory was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Starring Julie Christie, Greta Scacchi, Shahi Kapoor, Christopher Cazenove, Madhur Jaffrey and Nickolas Grace.
