The Woman in White | 1997
Two sisters, Marian and Laura Fairlie, are virtually imprisoned on Sir Percival Glyde's estate after his marriage to Laura. He wants all her wealth, but for some reason he also wants to detain and silence the strange, elusive woman in white who haunts the area and holds the key to a dark and sinister secret. Count Fosco, Sir Percival's duplicitous cousin, may or may not be cooperating in the ever-more-convoluted scheme. With evil forces closing in, only Marian can thwart the plan, but she herself is entangled in an inticate web of deceit--until she joins forces with the disgraced Walter Hartright, a young drawing master and hapless victim of an all-pervasive conspiracy, who for his part is in love with Laura. Based on the 1860 Victorian novel of the same title by Wilkie Collins.
