Movie Info

A boy learns a painful lesson about the ways of the heart in this period drama set in the 19th century. Vladimir (Nick Stahl) is a naive young man whose family is neither poor nor especially well off. While spending the summer in the country before going away to college, Vladimir is hired as a page for the wealthy family next door, whose matriarch is a middle-aged princess with a severe drinking problem and failing health. The princess has a lovely teen-aged daughter, Zinaida (Kirsten Dunst), and Vladimir soon becomes deeply infatuated with her. Vladimir hopes to somehow win Zinaida's heart, but she has a large circle of admirers, many of greater wealth, social position, and confidence than himself. While Vladimir becomes close friends with Zinaida, he isn't sure how to move their relationship to the next level, and the young man is crushed when he discovers one of his rivals for her affections happens to be his own father. Produced under the title All Forgotten, Lover's Prayer also stars Julie Walters and James Fox.

Audience Reviews for Lover's Prayer


Kirsten Dunst plays fallen royalty... it is a bit annoying to watch her play a spoiled brat... buy her time does come... besides she is very pretty.

Lover’s Prayer (1999) – This a dual love story: First love of a wealthy boy played by Nick Stahl (who competes with a gang of other suitors) to a daughter (Kirsten Dunst) of a cash strapped woman who tries to hold on to her station, and a peasant love affair between a hired hand and a woman whose husband went off to war. It’s a pretty good movie as far as love stories go, actually it's really good, but you know i can’t stand this kind of pain and suffering.
