About this item
"(Director) James Ivory and cast make every scene flutter with feeling" (Village Voice) in "The City of Your Final Destination", Merchant Ivory Productions' ravishing adaptation of Peter Cameron's novel about a young academic who travels to South America in hopes of convincing a trio of literary heirs to grant him permission to write an authorized biography of famous deceased author Jules Gund. When Omar (Omar Metwally) arrives unannounced in the exotic landscape of modern day Uruguay to woo Gund's family, he finds the late author's brother Adam (Academy Award(R) winner Anthony Hopkins), tart-tongued widow Caroline (Academy Award(R) nominee Laura Linney), and shy, dreamy mistress Arden (Cannes Best Actress winner Charlotte Gainsbourg) living together on Gund's family estate Ocho Rios, cut off from the world and guarding a secret history. Urged on by his girlfriend Deirdre (Alexandra Maria Lara), Omar begins to unravel the web of romance, betrayals and heartbreak that lies over the lush grounds of the family's retreat. As he struggles to gain the trust of the heirs, Omar finds himself seduced by the world of Ocho Rios and its inhabitants, and must come to terms with his own desire to break free of the life he's molded for himself but doesn't want to live.
