  • The Age of Innocence

    1993. USA. Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, Winona Ryder. Novelist Edith Wharton’s 1870s-set masterpiece might have been a surprising choice for Scorsese, considering his taste for rougher, contemporary fare, but it proved an ideal vehicle for his first collaboration with Ferretti, whose designs were nominated for an Oscar. Visually and temperamentally inspired by director Luchino Visconti (1906–1976), and in particular his The Leopard (1963) and The Innocent (1976), the film’s treatment of manners, social ceremony, décor, and furnishings is as crucial as the performances in conveying the tragedy of love frustrated by class and privilege. 139 min.
