Rumer Godden's The RiverDVD - 2005
The sights and sounds of postwar India provide the backdrop for the coming-of-age story of Harriet, the adolescent daughter of an English family living in Bengal. Falling in love with a wounded American war hero, she experiences the first pangs of womanhood, loses a beloved family member, and begins to express her deepest feelings in eloquent verse. The river becomes a mystical symbol for the wonder and magic of India, and for the ebb and flow of life.
