Past and present mirror each other in this lush, lyrical comedy that transports us to 1930’s India where beguiling, English poet Flora Crewe befriends a widowed painter who struggles to capture her romantic essence. Fifty years later, biographer Eldon Pike struggles to piece together Flora’s free-spirited life from the fragmented bits of evidence she left behind. This superbly told love story is set against one of the great shifts in history, the emergence of the Indian subcontinent from the grip of the British Empire.
