"The Magnificent Ambersons" is a lavish television miniseries based on Booth Tarkington's 1918 Pulitzer
Prize-winning novel of the same name, and adapted to the screen by Orson Welles. This film tells the story of two interwoven romances
amid the changing landscape of the American dream. Using the automobile as the essential icon for this change,
the film explores one family as they fail to keep pace with this new world of technological marvels.
Foolish in his youth, George Amberson Minafer (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) succumbs to the blind arrogance of wealth
and prevents his widowed mother Isabelle (Madeleine Stowe) from being with her true love, thereby
sabotaging his own relationship. In the end, George finds redemption through work, humility and the forgiveness of his one true love.
This film is made for television and not rated.
