Mrs Radcliffes Revolution
on 25 May 2008
I was thrilled to find this little gem of a film. A lovely British black comedy filmed in the Old Ealing Style. Catherine Tate plays the part of Dorothy Ratcliffe the downtrodden wife of Frank (Iain Glen), an English teacher who takes his family to East Germany to follow his communist dream! Fighting to keep her family together amidst the chaos that unfolds Dorothy finds an inner strength. The talented cast includes the beautiful up and coming actress Brittany Ashworth, who plays the part of Dorothy's rebel teenage daughter Alex.
This film is wonderfully sent up, and in my opinion one the the best Brit Flicks to be released on DVD this year!
I loved this film and adored the sixties soundtrack
