In 1666 in the Massachusetts Bay colony, Puritans and Algonquian have an uneasy truce. Hester arrives from England, seeking independence. Awaiting her husband, she establishes independence, fixing up a house, befriending Quakers and other outsiders. Passion draws her to a young pastor. He feels the same; when they learn her husband has probably died at the hands of Indians, they consummate their love. A child is born, and on the day Hester is publicly humiliated and made to wear a scarlet letter, her husband appears after a year with Indians. Calling himself Chillingworth, he seeks revenge, searching out Hester's lover and stirring fears of witchcraft. Will his murderous plot succeed? Written by

Now, I can honestly say it's not a movie that attracted my attention at first. Maybe it wasn't publicized well, but watching the beginning of the movie, got me in to watching the middle and the end of the movie in one sitting. I agree with past comments of this flick that it was not as people portrayed it to be, meaning so much speaking of the adultery issue. In the basic sense it follows the book, but I think the movie went much further in exploring the love two people shared, almost at first sight. I read the trivia in this website about this movie and noticed that Demi Moore had approved the ending of the movie. I am glad they went a different route and made the audience feel comfortable with the way things made out, rather than to leave the theater or shut off your TV set feeling like something was missing. It's unsatisfying. This movie is far from unsatisfying. If you would like an excellent love story with a great twist, see this movie. Gary Oldman is for the first time, sexy, and this movie has now made me a permanent fan of his brilliant acting.
