The Heart of Me

After the death of their father, Madeleine (Olivia Williams) invites her sister Dinah (Helena Bonham Carter) to stay in her elegant London home. Madeleine's husband Rickie (Paul Bettany) finds himself drawn to his darkly beautiful, bohemian sister-in-law. Torn between two women, one who always plays by the rules and one who always breaks them, Rickie risks everything by falling into a clandestine affair with Dinah. What follows is more than a decade of deception, betrayal, and manipulation during which Rickie's carefully constructed world falls apart and he is all but destroyed by love. Based on the novel "The Echoing Grove" by Rosamond Lehmann.
