This review is from: Anglo Saxon Attitudes [DVD] (DVD)
By any standards at all this is masterly story-telling, originally in Angus Wilson's novel, of course, but also in this exceptionally effective adaptation by Andrew Davies. It's inventive, sad, funny, intelligent - what more could you ask for? There's scarcely a weak performance anywhere, and the best are as good as it gets - principally Richard Johnson, who is simply magnificent down to the finest detail, but I'd also single out Amanda Mealing, Deborah Findlay, Nicholas Jones, and Dorothy Tutin. Don't hesitate to give it a go.
