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.
