Clarissa 1991
The pure and virtuous Clarissa Harlowe (Saskia Wickham) is heir to a sizeable fortune due to her good and generous nature, but this is something she does not want. She is content to live a modest life as long as she has her letters, books and independance. Despite this, her devious siblings feel that Clarissa should be put in her place and they coerce their father to entrap Clarissa in an engagement with an odious man she does not want and take away what few pleasures she has. Finding solace in Robert Lovelace (Sean Bean), the man who helps her escape her fate, Clarissa sees her world about to cave in once again when the nefarious Lovelace makes it clear that he has designs on her himself.
