One of the Best in 2012,
This review is from: Parade's End [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this wonderful period piece on TV and was captivated from the start. The character of Christopher Tietjens (a man of intelligence, honour and duty) is unlike any I have come across before. His unfaithful and acid tongued wife Sylvia loves him and hates him in almost equal measure - and in addition conspires to ruin him. As a catholic Christopher will not divorce her, but when he encounters a young suffragette (Valentine) his predicament appears to be coming to an end. However, war intervenes and Christopher joins up to fight. When the damaged hero returns 10 years have passed since he first met Valentine - who during that time has become devoted to him.

No, it's Sylvia who is the catholic and won't divorce and not Tietjens. His perverse sense of honour would probably have stopped him anyway, but he's very much an Anglican.
