A Fantastic Adaptation of the Book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Line of Beauty [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed the book, so was very keen to see the dvd. It didn't disappoint. All the characters were true to the book, especially Tim Mc Innery's pompous millionaire Tory MP Gerald Fedden.
The early part of the story is hopeful, with young gay graduate Nick Guest moving into the house and the world of the Feddens, becoming part of the family and also becoming part of the gay scene.
The latter stages follow Nick through an unsettled love life and the parallel emergence of his antics and that of Gerald cause the bubble to burst.
The only crazy bit was the party scene at the Feddens when Nick persuades Margaret Thatcher to dance with her much to the delight of the crowds. Trying to suspend my disbelief that this delicate looking actress was really the lady herself was a bit difficult!
