Finely honed film about thoughtless interpersonal cruelty.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Handful Of Dust  [DVD] (DVD)
A great adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's novel about self absorbed people in relationships but oblivious to their partners feeling to the point of sadistic cruelty.
I wanted to kick Tony Last (James Wilbey) as he placidly accepts his wife's sudden decision to have a London flat, study economics whilst he remains in his beloved country house. Brenda Last (Kristin Scott Thomas) is of course having an affair with frankly boring self seeking penniless John Beaver (Rupert Graves), supported by his rather nasty mother (Judi Dench).
Highly recommended and absorbing film about people you would never want to know.
