Eugenie Grandet (12)
Summerhall - Cinema
Sumptious costume adaption from the oft filmed novel by Honore de Balzac. Felix Grandet reigns supreme in his modest house in Saumur where his wife and daughter Eugenie lead a distraction-free existence. Extremely avaricious, he does not take a favourable view of the handsome suitors who rush to ask for his daughters hand. Nothing should damage the colossal fortune he hides from everyone. The sudden arrival of Grandet's nephew, a ruined, orphaned Parisian dandy, turns the young girl's life upside down.
