Mark Rylance, Kristin Scott Thomas and Patsy Kensit star in this "mesmerizing" (The New York Times) story of a scientist who marries the woman of his dreams only to find himself entangled in a nightmarish web of dark intrigue and shocking secrets! With stunning performances and breathtaking visuals, Angels and Insects is "tantalizing, hypnotic and seething with sexuality" (Playboy).
Taken in by a wealthy family after a failed expedition to the Amazon, biologist William Adamson (Rylance) wins the hand of his benefactor's daughter (Kensit) and believes his dreamsof fame and fortune may finally come true. But a servant (Thomas) has secret knowledge about his new family, and his visions of grandeur tarnish in light of an erotic decadence and illicit passion beyond his darkest fears.
