Plot Summary

Miss Julie (Saffron Burrows) is a young woman of privilege, destined to marry into an affluent family of high standing. But one night, while rubbing elbows with her family's servants, she finds herself irrevocably drawn to Jean (Peter Mullan), a strong-willed and impertinent footman. Though he's already engaged, Jean yearns for the rebellious Miss Julie. Passion ignites, and, as the couple allow themselves to give way to temptation, the consequences of their affair grow increasingly dire.
