Orchid House
  • Description

    Featuring an all-star cast and based on one of the great novels of West Indian literature; Orchid House is a gripping and at times breathtaking drama of thwarted passion, desire and colonialism in Dominica, directed by acclaimed independent director Horace Ové.

    Lally tells the story of all she has seen, raising the three white daughters of a formerly powerful but now impoverished family.
    Master has returned from war a broken man, chained to a curse from which there is no release. Nurtured and cared for by both his wife Madam, and Mamselle the children’s tutor, the tides of change sweep and swirl around them, eating away at the oncesolid rock of the white man’s dominance and the all-powerful control of the church.

    When the three daughters, having left the island, reconvene to shore up what is left of their household, they find an island sultry with the sweat of toil, protest, unresolved passion, death and desire. Secrets that have lain suppressed too long are about to be exposed at the Orchid House.
