The sensual film based on the acclaimed novel by Jean Rhys.
In the wake of Jamaican emancipation, French colonist Annette Cosway (Rachel Ward) falls into poverty and marries racist Englishman Paul Mason (Michael York). But when Annette's young son dies in a fire started by former slaves, Mason flees to England, leaving his grief-stricken wife and her Creole daughter Antoinette (Karina Lombard) behind. Soon Antoinette learns she must marry to claim her inheritance and sets her sights on Rochester (Nathaniel Parker), an Englishman eerily similar to Mason.

Only if you're studying the novels "Wide Sargasso Sea" & "Jane Eyre" or if you are interested in literature, other than that I wouldn't recommend this movie.
