Gillian Anderson, Eric Stoltz, Dan Ackroyd, Elizabeth McGovern.
The ravishing but penniless socialite Lily Bart (Anderson) learns that only marriage will bring her acceptance in the brutal, brittle climate of turn-of- the-century Manhattan society where appearances are all. Her heart-breaking situation (jealousy and malice threaten) infuses a period drama that provides an astute commentary on our own society.
