From Academy Award® winning director John Schlesinger comes a brilliantly witty film. Staring Kate Beckinsale (Much Ado Abut Nothing) as Flora Poste, a London society girl, and Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous) as Flora's friend and mentor, this heartwarming British comedy is full of charm and clever satire.
Recently orphaned, Flora ignores the sage advise of Mrs. Smiley (Lumley) and moves to the country to live on a decrepit farm with her eccentric relatives. Fancying herself a writer, Flora encounters perfect material for her novel in the humorously odd collection of rural characters. In her own inimitable way, Flora insists on creating order out of their chaos, and in the process, she fills their lives with light and laughter. Also starring Rufus Sewell (Carrington), Ian McKellen (Richard III, Restoration), Stephen Fry (Peter's Friends) and Eileen Atkins.
