Seduction and scandal are on the menu for our next High Tea Cinema!

Celebrating its 30th anniversary with a new restoration, Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Edith Wharton’s novel has never looked so sumptuous!

In the upper echelons of 1870s New York, high-minded young lawyer Newland Archer (Daniel Day-Lewis) is being groomed to wed the impeccably suitable May Welland (Winona Ryder, nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for the role).

But then her cousin Ellen (Michelle Pfeiffer) returns to town abruptly, having fled a “dissolute” European husband and trailing scandal in her wake. Dispatched to persuade Ellen to give up her intention to divorce, Archer finds himself falling in love with her instead, throwing everything he’s ever known into jeopardy.

This sensational slice of cinema is sure to keep you intrigued as you enjoy a cup of tea and a scone that we promise will be just as scrumptious as the film itself!
