Day 141

Movie: Age of Innocence
Starring: Daniel Day Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer,
Genre: Drama, Romance
Year: 1993
Format: TV EDIT

Plot: At the turn of the century in New York, a society scandal keeps two would be lovers from marrying.

This is based on a book.

The topic here is love over duty.  The leads are trapped in marriages they don't really want to be in.  Jealousy follows.
It focuses mostly on a lawyer who falls in love with a woman who wants to get a divorce from her first husband. Whom is talked about but I dont remember seeing in the film.
There are some big traits that are common now in society still, even though it's set in the 1870's.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Society's structure and it's expectations will always have a hold on even the most honest people.
