Storyline

It's the mid-nineteenth century. Adult siblings Felix Young and Eugenia Munster were born and raised in Europe and have a somewhat bohemian lifestyle reflective of their travels throughout Europe. Felix, who has little money, is interested in painting and the arts. Eugenia is a baroness by marriage. They decide to travel to New England to meet their maternal uncle and their three cousins, the Wentworths, for the first time, the Wentworths who live just outside of Boston. The Wentworths are highly puritanical, the uncle in particular who looks to a neighbor, Mr. Brand, to provide a moral compass to his three children, especially the shy Gertrude, who Mr. Brand wants to marry. The Wentworths are somewhat suspicious as to the reason for their relatives' visit, but nonetheless the uncle puts them up in a neighboring house on their property.

Remick shines
27 March 2005 | by (St. John's, NL, Canada) – See all my reviews

I take issue with with Hal-900's assessment of Lee Remick's performance in this movie. I agree that she is physically perfect, but laughed and cringed at the same time at the statement that Remick was "unable to meet the demands of her complex role", whatever that means. She never gave a bad performance, elevated any movie she was ever in, and was the caliber of the other actresses mentioned, Jane Fonda and Faye Dunaway, if not better. She is utterly delightful in The Europeans and plays the sly baroness with panache. I have not seen many Merchant Ivory films and don't generally watch period pieces, but this one I did enjoy, mainly for Remick.
