Based on the novel by Elizabeth Taylor, set in England, 1905. Angel Deverell is a gifted young writer who dreams of success, fame and love. But what will happen if all her dreams come true? Acclaimed director François Ozon's first English language feature has been selected as closing film at the 57th Berlin International Film Festival, and will screen in the festival's official competition. The story of a destitute-but-determined young woman living in turn-of-the-century England who ascends the social ranks after authoring a series of successful romantic novels. A dreary city tenement provides backdrop to this tale of exclusion and the magic it takes to become accepted. This is the story of a young woman with incredible imagination who refuses to accept the world around her, and creates her own realities.
