The Inheritance (1996)

"The Inheritance is a story about family, love, loss and honour based on the recently-discovered manuscript by classic author Louisa May Alcott (Little Women).
Beautiful orphan Edith Adelton came to the United States as a child to be a companion and tutor to the Hamilton family's young daughter Amy. Though Edith's parentage is a mystery, she has found great happiness with the Hamiltons. When the family's cousin Ida comes to visit, Mrs. Hamilton enlists Edith in a matchmaking plan involving two suitors for Ida. But both men fall for the lovely Edith. As Ida sees her chances fade, she schemes to discredit Edith, leading the family to a crisis of loyalties. Are Ida's accusations enough to dissolve the family's trust in Edith? Or is there a secret truth below the surface, beyond the evidence…within the heart? "
