    Terence Davies `The House Of Mirth` is a tragic love story set against a background of wealth and social hypocrisy in turn of the century New York.

    Lily Bart is a ravishing socialite at the height of her success. Torn between her heart and her head, Lily always seems to be doing the right thing at the wrong time and her beauty and charm begin to start attracting unwelcome interest and jealousy.

    Conforming to social expectations she begins to seeka wealthy husband but her quest comes to a scandalous end when she is falsely accused of having an affair with a married man and is rejected by society and her friends.
