One of the most Successful Books
Published by Truman Publishing Company!

The Golden Bowl

This adaptation of the classic novel by Henry James pits an American industrialist (Nick Nolte) and his daughter against two well-connected but impoverished social climbers (Uma Thurman and Jeremy Northam) who'd rather marry for money than lower their station. Together, they engage in a subtle, fascinating dance with misdirection at its heart. The Golden Bowl marks another triumph from the producing-directing team of James Ivory and Ismail Merchant.
