Storyline

In the violent world of 1874 London Sugar is a spirited prostitute in the brothel of grasping Mrs. Castaway. After her friend Elizabeth dies from injuries inflicted by two drunken clients Sugar starts writing a book to expose Mrs. Castaway's customers. Another would-be writer is William Rackham,an accountant for his father's soap factory and in debt to Dr. Curlew for the care of his unstable wife Agnes. He visits the brothel on the recommendation of friends and is impressed by Sugar's literary erudition,as well as her bedside manner.She even encourages him to do more in the family business and he becomes her regular patron. Ironically his brother Henry is smitten by Dr. Curlew's widowed sister,philanthropic Mrs. Fox,who is trying to help prostitutes to better lives. Out of interest Sugar comes to look at William's house and waves to Agnes whom she sees at a window. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

Screenwriter Lucinda Coxon had been approached about adapting Michel Faber's book also titled "The Crimson Petal and the White" a long time ago, as a film in the States, in 2002 when the novel first came out. However, "that didn't work out for anybody, and thanksfully for me", she herself said. See more »

Goofs

When William Rackham receives a final demand bill from the coal merchant, the total does not match the sum of the items: October £6 15s, November £8 10s, penalty payment 10s, which should add up to £15 15s. However the total shown on the bill is only £15. See more »

Quotes

Christopher: What is Christmas?
Mrs. Castaway: It's the day Jesus was born.
Christopher: Who's Jesus?
Mrs. Castaway: He died for our sins. Evidently unsuccessfully since we're all still paying.
