"One Of The Best Films Of The Year! A Crowning Achievement!"-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The glittering yet treacherous world of New York high society comes to brilliant life in the heartbreaking story of Lily Bart (Gillian Anderson, TV's "The X-Files"), a renowned beauty of exquisite charm who seeks a wealthy husband, but in a series of tragic events, winds up disgraced and discarded.

Adapted from Edith Wharton's novel and directed by Terence Davies (Distant Voices, Still Lives), The House Of Mirth is an intelligent dramatic sensation, which features an outstanding supporting all-star cast including Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me), Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction), Dan Akroyd (Ghostbusters) and Anthony LaPaglia (Sweet and Lowdown).
