“The Widow of Saint-Pierre” (2000; starring Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil, in French with English subtitles).
This movie is a departure of sorts, since, for once, being liberal has severe consequences, as a French army captain/jail warden and his wife find out on a remote, French island (Saint-Pierre) located off of Newfoundland in 1849-1850. They get too friendly with a condemned murderer who will soon face the guillotine. In the end, they pay dearly for that. It’s based on a true story, by the way. With no negroes, Mexicans or queers, and some good acting and scenery, this movie is better than average, despite any liberal messages within it. It’s available on DVD.
