In Roman Polanski's take on ''Tess of the D'Urbervilles,'' impressionable young Tess is sent by her alcoholic father to visit her rich relatives and apply for a job. She's taken in and immediately seduced by her cousin, Alec, who leaves her pregnant. She keeps it to herself and, after the child dies, begins a relationship with a respectable farmer, Angel . They marry, but when Angel learns of her speckled past, he's not sure he can live with it.
