The Story Of Adele H.

Based on a true story, Adele (Isabelle Adjani), daughter of French author and patriot Victor Hugo ('Les Miserables', 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'), is beautiful, composed and filled with the same brilliant writing talent as her famous father. However, Adele is driven not by literary aspirations but by love. Impelled by a need that will not be denied, she has run away from home to follow her handsome, womanizing lover (Bruce Robinson, later writer/director of 'Withnail and I') across an ocean to wintry Halifax, Nova Scotia. Wild with desire, she'll risk everything to renew their brief affair. And if she can't win him back, there'll be a terrible price to pay.
