NOTES

Based on The Bostonians / Henry James

Olive, a militant suffragette, takes on the education of Verena, a brilliantly gifted but naive young girl. Olive wants to mold and use this gift for the feminist cause. But Verena is also loved by Basil Ransom, an impecunious young lawyer with views strenuously opposed to the Boston feminists. The contest is met between Basil and Olive. The prize: possession of Verena
