The Magnificent Ambersons is an A&E Network film for television, inspired in Booth Tarkington's book The Magnificent Ambersons. It was filmed using Orson Welles's screenplay and editing notes of the original film.

Directed by Alfonso Arau, the film stars Madeleine Stowe, Bruce Greenwood, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Gretchen Mol, and Jennifer Tilly. This film does not strictly follow Welles's screenplay. It lacks several scenes included in the 1942 version, and has essentially the same happy ending.
