Jane Campion, director of The Piano brings her strong, sensual vision to Henry James' great novel of freedom and seduction.

Nicole Kidman is Isabel Archer, a young woman of daring independence and equally fierce desires. However her headstrong innocence is no match for the manipulations of her cunning friend Madame Merle (Barbara Hershey) and the devious Gilbert Osmond (John Malkovich).

Yue Zhuo on
While this is a lush and beautiful period piece, the problem with it is that it is somewhat dull. Despite stellar performances by John Malkovich, Barbara Hershey, and the supporting cast, the main star, Nicole Kidman, is out of her league, though she is a luminous beauty and has some acting ability. The problem is that her performance lacks the presence or depth necessary to make this a truly interesting film. She just is not good enough an actress to be able to carry the storyline and engage the viewer. It is unfortunate, as the film is an otherwise good adaptation of Henry James' novel of the same name.
Tessa Chudy on
Portrait of A Lady is a frustrating and brittle movie that lacks the vitality and verve that Jane Campion bought to The Piano. A rich American woman travels to Europe where she becomes entangle with a sinister and cold man and his friend despite warnings to the contrary. The performances are uncomfortable as is the script which is rather messy.
