Customer Review

on January 24, 2010
This one's a gem.

Beautifully adapted from the original book (itself an excellent read) and superbly played by an ensemble cast, HOUSEWIFE, 49 has proved that Victoria Wood has grown up as a screenwriter. Her other effort, PAT & MARGARET is nothing like as successful as this, being far too self-conscious, but here she conveys some rich characterisation in a remarkable tale of wartime fortitude.

She also acts in it, beautifully.

It's well worth a look, and if you are a Victoria Wood fan, well worth revelling in her ability to develop as an artist.

It's a good one.
