The Far Pavilions  (DVD)
M M Kayes epic of love and war, stars Ben Cross, and moves from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the burning plains, to the besieged British Mission in Kabul.
Epic adaptation of M.M. Kaye's novel. Englishman Ash (Ben Cross) was orphaned at the age of four, but was saved from the Indian Mutiny by a Hindu foster mother who brought him up as her own. Only on her deathbed did she reveal Ash's true origins to him, and he finds himself torn between the British and Indian establishments as he tries to win the hand of Anjula (Amy Irving), his childhood friend, now an Indian princess already betrothed to a local ruler.
This is a story of divided loyalties and fierce friendship; of love made impossible by class and race. And, an examination of the cultural and spiritual clash between East and West peopled by a wonderful cast of characters, this is the very stuff of drama.
