Mr. North (1988)

Type :   Production countries :  


Set in 1920s Newport, Rhode Island, the film tells the story of Theophilus North , an engaging, multi-talented middle class Yale graduate—who spends the summer catering to the wealthy families of the city. He becomes the confidant of James McHenry Bosworth , and a tutor and tennis coach to the families' children. He also befriends many of the city's servant class including Henry Simmons , Amelia Cranston , and Sally Boffin .

Complications arise when some residents begin to ascribe healing powers to the static electricity shocks that Mr. North happens to generate frequently. Despite never claiming any healing or medical abilities he is accused of quackery and must, with the help of those he has befriended, defend himself.

In the end he accepts a position of leadership at an educational and philosophical academy founded by Mr. Bosworth, and begins a romance with Bosworth's granddaughter Persis.
