THE FAR PAVILIONS (Streaming Exclusive)

Based on M.M. Kaye's beloved novel, the classic star-studded, mid-1980s miniseries marked HBO's first miniseries and offered a classic tale of forbidden love, set against the spectacular sweep of battle, treachery, and intrigue in British India. An orphan from the age of four, when his parents were killed during the Indian Mutiny, Ashton Pelham-Martyn (Ben Cross, Star Trek. Chariots of Fire) was raised by his Hindu foster mother, Sita, who disguised him as her own son and called him Ashok. After Sita's death, Ash learns the truth about his biological parents. By this time, he has already pledged his undying affection to a young Indian princess, Anjuli (Academy Award nominee Amy Irving, Yentl, Traffic). Although the two are in love, they are separated by forces beyond their control. Seven years later, Ash, now a British soldier, returns to India, where he is assigned to escort the wedding procession of two Indian princesses. One of the princesses happens to be none other than his beloved Anjuli. The all-star cast also includes Omar Sharif, John Gielgud, Rupert Everett, Christopher Lee, and Robert Hardy. (6 EPS)
