A lyrical adaptation of Rumer Godden’s beloved coming-of-age novel, Renoir’s first colour feature follows a close-knit upper class British family living in Bengal in the waning days of colonial India. Harriet and her four adolescent sisters’ placid lives are disrupted with the arrival of a soldier who is recovering from the horrors of war, and offers the smitten girls an insight into a wider world they have never been exposed to before.
