|Heat and Dust|
It's a beautiful movie about women and the choices they make in life and love, particularly choices that don't seem rational to the society they live within. There's a great deal in the movie that I don't want to give away (especially as it's central to the plot development!), but I was particularly taken by the psychological portrait the film painted of Olivia.

Overall the movie is a fascinating exploration of the British female psyche in India. I haven't read Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's novel that the movie is based on (which won a Booker) but if it's half as good as the movie, which I suspect it is, I'd certainly recommend it.
