The Fever

After hearing a friend of hers rant about privilege and poverty, a rich woman (Vanessa Redgrave) completely oblivious to the world outside of her upscale urban lifestyle travels to a third-world country. Initially content to stick to the tourist area, the woman's worldview is shaken when a journalist (Michael Moore) shows her the devastated, war-torn majority of the country. When struck with a delirium-inducing fever in her hotel room, the woman reevaluates her understanding of life.

In 1961, Edith (Vanessa Redgrave) loses her lover, Abby (Marian Seldes), to a stroke. Linda (Michelle Williams) and Amy (Chloë Sevigny) struggle with feminist issues in 1972.
