Plot Outline:

Young and independent Hester Prynne arrives at the Massachusetts Bay colony, where she quickly stands out due to her forward nature. She strikes up a friendship - and then much more - with a local pastor, and when word arrives her husband has likely died at the hands of Native Americans, she consummates their affair and a child quickly follows. But this draws the ire of the puritanical colony and things are made worse when her husband shows up alive and well, seeking justice and revenge. -- Chris Kavan

By all accounts (including mine) a terrible adaptation. If you're trying to write a report or something, get Cliffs Notes and forget this movie exists, because if you're basing it off this dreck, you're gonna get an F for sure.

After reading the book I thought I would check this movie out. I really didn't like the book so I don't know what I was thinking. What a really, really bad movie. Very sexual and different than the book. If you think you need to see this, go with the bad book instead.
