Synopsis
When F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote Tender is the Night, he captured all the sophistication and elegance of the 1920s. And he revealed the dark brutality lying just beneath the surface in this civilized, glittering society. As his last completed work, this haunting tragedy is one of the great American novels. On the rosy sands of the French Riviera, a radiant young American film star, Rosemary Hoyt, falls in love with a handsome doctor of psychiatry. But as the dazzle of their perfect summer fades, their adulterous affair casts long shadows over their lives. Dr. Diver's fragile relationship with his wealthy but unstable wife disintegrates as his career and reputation dissolve in rounds of cocktails. Both a compelling story of passion and a searing commentary on dependency, Tender is the Night resonates with Fitzgerald's finely-tuned language. Although the autobiographical ties are clear: alcoholism, mental illness, the ennui of luxury, Fitzgerald crafts these elements into a brilliant parable of an age.
