Joseph Cotten plays an artist who is unable to bring any true feeling to his work. While painting in Central Park, he makes the acquaintance of a schoolgirl named Jennie who prattles on about things that happened years ago. Over the next few months, Eben meets Jennie again and again -- and each time she seems to have aged by several years. Based on the novel by Robert Nathan, Portrait of Jennie is one of the most beautifully assembled fantasies ever presented onscreen.
