Product Description

Based on Philippa Gregory's best-selling novel, The Little House.

BAFTA winning actress Francesca Annis (Cranford, Jane Eyre, Reckless) stars alongside renowned film, stage and television actors Tim Pigott-Smith (Alice in Wonderland, ENRON, Foyle’s War) and Rupert Evans (Emma, The Palace, Hellboy) and rising star Lucy Griffiths (Collision, Robin Hood, U Be Dead). The drama follows the story of Ruth (Griffiths), who is married to career minded Patrick (Evans) as she is pushed towards the limits of her own sanity when she becomes entangled in the lives of her wealthy but interfering in-laws Elizabeth (Annis) and Frederick (Pigott-Smith).

After falling unexpectedly pregnant, Ruth finds herself swept along on a tide of apparently well-intentioned family gestures which leave the previously independent teacher detached from her former city life and living in the little house at the end of her in-laws driveway. Ruth struggles to bond with her demanding baby son and her mother-in-law is quick to intervene. As she struggles with Postpartum psychosis and unresolved feelings about her mother’s suicide, an all consuming fear grips Ruth that her mother-in-law is unnaturally obsessed with her grandson.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: The Little House is a thrilling 2 part feature length drama adaptation of Philippa Gregory's best selling novel, which explores the psychological power struggles within one family. Adapted for television by Ed Whitmore (Identity, Waking The Dead). BAFTA winning actress Francesca Annis (Cranford) stars alongside renowned film, stage and television actors Tim Pigott-Smith (Foyle's War) and Rupert Evans (Emma) and rising star Lucy Griffiths (Collision). Ruth (Griffiths), is married to career minded Patrick (Evans) as she is pushed towards the limits of her own sanity when she becomes entangled in the lives of her wealthy but interfering in-laws Elizabeth (Annis) and Frederick (Pigott-Smith). After falling unexpectedly pregnant, Ruth finds herself swept along on a tide of apparently well-intentioned family gestures which leave the previously independent teacher detached from her former city life and living in 'the little house' at the end of her in-laws' driveway. Elizabeth's complex relationship with Ruth is subtly developed as they both try and take control of their connected lives until, inevitably, and very dramatically, they reach a point of no return. Is Elizabeth playing mind games with Ruth? Could she really be manipulating events against her daughter in-law? Or is Ruth hysterically distorting things in her own mind? ...The Little House

5.0 out of 5 stars Francesca Annis 20 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Francesca Annis is undoubtedly the finest actress on screen - bar none. I have already purchased most of her other work and in 'The Little House', which has a great cast, she demonstrates pure quality - brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Evil 25 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could not wait to buy this dvd after seeing it on the tv.Francesca Annis is brilliant as the manipulative and dare i say evil mother in law who is out to rid herself of her daughter in law by making her doubt her sanity,after the birth of her first baby.Annis plays the mother in law from hell,totally narcissistic,in her bid to keep her son and grandchild to herself.With a surprise ending ,this is top drama.
