The Heiress is an adaptation of the 1881 novel Washington Square by Henry James. James crafted a minutely detailed portrait of life among the New York aristocracy with his characteristic attention to historical accuracy. (James drew on his personal knowledge of Washington Square society for the novel. His grandmother had lived at No. 18 Washington Square North and he grew up around the corner on Washington Place.)
Ruth and Augustus Goetz have fashioned from the novel a thrilling and intense script.
