In 1931 Paris, Anais Nin meets Henry Miller and his wife June. Intrigued by them both, she begins expanding her sexual horizons with her husband Hugo as well as with Henry and others. June shuttles between Paris and New York trying to find acting jobs while Henry works on his first major work, "Tropic of Cancer," a pseudo-biography of June. Anais and Hugo help finance the book, but June is displeased with Henry's portrayal of her, and Anais and Henry have many arguments about their styles of writing on a backdrop of a Bohemian lifestyle in Paris.

Approximately twenty-two years later, Philip Kaufman
would make another film about the relationship between a writer and a spouse: Hemingway & Gellhorn
(2012). That movie and Henry & June
(1990) are also similar in that both films are titled with the names of two central romantic characters in each picture, though in one film they are first names, and in the other they are surnames or last names. See more
