When intimacy is forbidden and passion is a sin, love is the most defiant crime of all.
Sexy Demi Moore (Ghost) sizzles in this passionate epic of forbidden love and sinful secrets between a married woman and the town minister! When the free-spirited Hester Prynne (Moore) arrives in 17th century America, she is immediately drawn to the handsome Reverend Dimmesdale (Gary Oldman - Dracula) and engages in a scandalous affair. Branded an adulteress by the enraged townspeople, Hester is forced to wear a badge of shame for her sins. But her true punishment comes when her violent husband (Robert Duvall - Something To Talk About), who was presumed dead, suddenly appears to seek retribution! Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's time-honoured saga, THE SCARLET LETTER is rich with romance and ripe with suspense.
