Henry and June
1990
**
Director: Philip Kaufman
Cast: Fred Ward, Uma Thurman, Maria de Medeiros, Richard E. Grant

Philip Kaufman follows The Unbearable Lightness of Being with another literary adaptation set in 20th century Europe. He has adapted Anaïs Nin’s book which describes her relationship with author Henry James and his wife June. The film is beautifully made and wonderfully acted but it never draws you in, and these characters only encage your intellect.
