Rappaccini's Daughter is a made for television adaptation of the classic Nathanial Hawthorne short story about poisoned love. Set in Padua, Italy, young student Giovanni (Kristoffer Tabori) becomes enamoured of Beatrice (Kathleen Beller), the beautiful daughter of local scientific hermit Dr. Rappaccini (Leonardo Cimino). The beautiful girl has apparently lived in isolation all her life, with only the beauty of the local gardens as companionship. Despite being warned against pursing her, Giovanni enters the gardens and meets with Beatrice on several occasions. As their relationship blossoms, Giovanni discovers that Beatrice has been the subject of Rappaccini's darkest experiments. The beautiful woman has been exposed to so much plant venom and toxicity in her upbringing, that she herself has become poisonous in nature. Despite this, Rappaccini urges the young man to look beyond her poisonous nature, and to see the inner beauty and purity of the young woman within. When Giovanni discovers his exposure to Beatrice has rendered he, himself poisonous, the two lovers attempt to partake of an antidote that will either cure or doom them both.moreless
