In 1928 a young English woman, Adela Quested (Judy Davis), travels to colonial India with her fiances mother, Mrs. Moore (Peggy Ashcroft), to be with her fiance Ronnie. Adela arrives to find an alien environment, yet evocative and sensual in a way she cannot fathom. Mrs. Moore is similarly captivated by India, but is less than admiring of the treatment of the Indians by their colonial masters, i.e. her peers. While there, they meet Dr. Asiz (Victor Banerjee) and Mr. Fielding (James Fox) and the mysterious, mystical Professor Godbole (Alec Guinness). Dr Asiz invites Mrs Moore and Adela to a picnic at the Caves in the Marabar Hills, and while there "the incident" happens. An incident that will change them all.
Starring: Judy Davis, Victor Banerjee, Peggy Ashcroft, James Fox, Alec Guinness.
