In James Ivory and Ismail Merchant's final collaboration, Todd Jackson is a jaded American diplomat in 1930s Shanghai keeping sordid company with a refugee Russian countess (Natasha Richardson) who's been reduced to prostitution. Kazuo Ishigur (Remains of the Day) wrote the original screenplay. (138 min, PG-13)
