Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Based on the acclaimed novel by Nobel Prize-winning author Pearl S. Buck, Pavilion Of Women is an exquisite tale of freedom and forbidden love set in the last turbulent days of imperial China. 1938. Madame Wu (Luo Yan) has just turned 40 years old and has grown weary of her husband's dominance. Now that her children are grown up, she yearns to expand her intellectual horizons - so, in violation of traditional custom, she arranges for a young peasant girl to be brought to the household as Lord Wu's concubine.

Madame Wu relishes her new-found freedom and begins taking lessons with her son, learning English from a kind American missionary, Brother Andre (Willem Dafoe). She soon finds herself falling for the compassionate stranger, as circumstances cause both her household and China itself to explode into chaos.
