Under Heaven (1998): A Modern Retelling of The Wings of the Dove

Under Heaven is a 1998 American drama film directed by Meg Richman and starring Joely Richardson, Aden Young, and Molly Parker. The film is based on the novel The Wings of the Dove by Henry James, but it updates the story to a contemporary setting in Seattle. The film explores the themes of love, betrayal, and death through a complex and passionate love triangle between a wealthy, terminally ill woman, a struggling musician, and her ex-boyfriend.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 1998 and received a limited theatrical release on July 17, 1998. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised Richardson's performance but criticized the script for being too simplistic and deviating from James' original novel. The film was also overshadowed by another adaptation of The Wings of the Dove, directed by Iain Softley and starring Helena Bonham Carter and Linus Roache, which was released in the same year and received more acclaim and awards recognition.

Under Heaven is not a faithful adaptation of The Wings of the Dove, but rather a loose reinterpretation that changes the characters, the setting, and the tone of the original story. While James' novel is set in London and Venice in the early 20th century and features a sophisticated and cynical plot by two lovers to inherit the fortune of a dying heiress, Richman's film is set in Seattle in the late 20th century and features a naive and impulsive scheme by two musicians to benefit from the generosity of a dying woman. The film also adds elements of comedy, melodrama, and spirituality that are absent or muted in James' novel.

The film's main strength lies in the performance of Joely Richardson as Eleanor Dunston, the wealthy woman who suffers from a terminal illness and falls in love with Buck, played by Aden Young. Richardson portrays Eleanor with grace, dignity, and vulnerability, making her a sympathetic and complex character. She also has a good chemistry with Young, who plays Buck as a charming but troubled man who is torn between his love for Cynthia, played by Molly Parker, and his attraction to Eleanor. Parker, however, is less convincing as Cynthia, the ambitious and manipulative woman who orchestrates the plan to seduce Eleanor. She fails to convey Cynthia's inner conflict and guilt over her actions.

Under Heaven is not a masterpiece of cinema, but it is a decent drama that offers some emotional moments and some insights into human nature. It is also an interesting contrast to the other adaptation of The Wings of the Dove that came out in 1998, which was more faithful to James' novel but also more cold and distant. Under Heaven may appeal to fans of romantic dramas who are looking for a different take on a classic story. aa16f39245
