The novel was filmed in 1997, starring Helena Bonham Carter as Kate Croy, Alison Elliott as Milly Theale, and Linus Roache as Merton Densher. Bonham Carter received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
Henry James is regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. The Wings of the Dove has achieved one of the strongest critical positions of any of James’ works.
A poignant story of unfulfilled lives and lost love!”
