Product Description

Adapted from William Boyd's novel, Restless is a gripping spy thriller about love, betrayal and duplicity.

Sally Gilmartin (Emmy-Award nominated Charlotte Rampling) can t escape the secrets of her past. Born Eva Delectorskaya (Hayley Atwell Any Human Heart, Captain America: The First Avenger), the WWII-era spy was forced into hiding after a critical mission ended with a deadly betrayal. Three decades on, Sally recruits her unsuspecting daughter (Michelle Dockery Downton Abbey) to finally discover the truth and uncover the traitor from the past.

Put it on and realised I had seen it before ages ago. It was still so watchable, and exciting, and kept you thinking right to the end. Birlliant work with brilliant actors all the way through. Get this, don't miss it, it is such a good thrilling watch. Thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I could remember bits of it from seeing it before, it still kept my interest.

Great story ! I had a little trouble with the dialogue and background sound overriding the voices; however, all in all, it was a fabulously entertaining story ! I am still not sure about the ending, but believe that the double cross/double agent scenario did not become apparent until the very end (I hope that I haven't given too much away). The acting was brilliant, the period settings historically accurate, and the background and historical portrayals were wonderful in the social context of the times. The story is in two parts so required two evenings of viewing. Because of the intensity of the plot, two evenings would be more appropriate. It was well written, well acted, and spectacularly produced and directed.

I really did like this film when it came out and hoped it would come out on DVD.

It has a good plot, well placed, plenty of twists and turns. It is not perfect but it is very enjoyable

An absorbing World War 2 story based on real events told with the British reserve of the time. A reserve which actually adds tension and unexpected (but appropriate) fear in a number of situations. Superb acting helps in understanding the complicated plot. Those British were determined patriots during WW2, brave, harshly so sometimes, but you won't see any whining! The flash backs were clear and poignant which is sometimes not the case. I saw this for the 1st time two years ago and never forgot it. And so had to own it as soon as I could, and I do!

I am a fan of William Boyd and loved the TV adaptation of Any Human Heart, so was excited when I saw Restless had been adapted for TV too and like Any Human Heart, it didn't disappoint. Hayley Atwell is a really good actress and she's very convincing in this, as is Rufus Sewell - he always plays 'dastardly' so well.

For anyone interested in this period in history and anyone who loves a good WWII drama - it's a must see! Brilliant storyline, brilliant characters and brilliant actors - so all in all - BRILLIANT!
