Academy Award® winner Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love) and Aaron Eckhart (Thank You for Smoking) star in this seductively intriguing mystery that critics hailed as “the most romantic film of the year!” (Bill Zwecker, Fox-TV) Dedicated literary scholars Maud Bailey (Paltrow) and Roland Michell (Eckhart) have nothing in common, except their obsession with the two Victorian poets they have devoted their lives to studying. When a newly discovered cache of love letters reveals that the two writers had been entangled in a forbidden affair, everything changes for Maud and Roland as they set off on a wildly romantic journey in search of the truth about the fascinating past… and their own passionate present.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: It's perhaps a bit tame and uninspiring, considering its subject matter, but Possession manages enough romance and period intrigue to satisfy most fans of its source material.
Glossy romance with pretty people.
