"Careful what you wish for" people say. When over ambitious model Leonora (Barbara Bel Geddes) lands a millionaire husband, she thinks she’s finally made it. But little by little, the dream of a lifetime becomes a nightmare, as Leonora discovers that her husband is a tyrannical sadist and that she herself has been trapped in a gilded cage. The question is not whether Leonora will manage to escape the physical confines of her environment, but whether see can tell the difference between reality and illusion. Max Ophüls and screenwriter Arthur Laurents deliver an intense psychological drama about obsession with money, success and opulence.
