The Age of Innocence
Just before their fateful kiss, Newland Archer (Daniel Day-Lewis) tells the married Countess Ellen Olenska (Michelle Pfeiffer), "Nothing’s done that can't be undone. I'm still free." But, as this 1993 adaptation of the Edith Wharton classic illustrates, no one was really free in 1870's New York society. They were all trapped by the expectations and dictates of the world in which they lived.
