An Oscar winner for Best Cinematography, Roman Polanski's retelling of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles tells the dark tale of Tess (Nastassja Kinski), a teenage servant to a wealthy family whose son, Alec (Leigh Lawson), seduces, impregnates and abandons her. Tess finds renewed hope when she falls in love with Angel (Peter Firth), a parson's son – though she faces tragic consequences when he learns of her sordid past.
