What Is the Story of Arcadia?
Set in both 1809 and the present day, Arcadia takes place at a lavish English estate where Thomasina, a 19th-century teenager, has discovered a mathematical theory years ahead of her time. Dismissed by her suave tutor Septimus, Thomasina continues to look into her discovery while casually observing the various infidelities of her mother and the other adults residing in her home. During modern times, two academics work alongside the home’s current tenants (Thomasina’s relatives) to research the events that occurred in the house during Thomasina’s time. The academics have varied viewpoints on the activities that took place, but form a bond as they both hunt for answers.
