Storyline

An aristocratic woman, Lady Isabel, leaves her husband and children when she suspects him of adultery, a notion which had been suggested to her by the scheming and murderous Captain Levison. Life on the continent with Levison does not work out as she had envisaged so, eight years later, she returns to England and finds her husband has remarried. She cannot bear to be away from her family and so dons a disguise, gaining employment with them as a governess. When her young son, Willie, dies she is unable to comfort him as she would like, and she too dies. Written by Daniel King

early Merchant/Ivory-style melodrama
29 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this film some years ago as part of an MA course. Stylistically it marked something of an improvement from others we had seen previously and some of the visuals were quite stunning; in fact they put me in mind of the heritage cinema of today, with lyrical shots of meadows and angelic looking characters, particularly women. Also like todays heritage cinema the film was based on a bestseller of the time, which I believe has been filmed several times before and since. It may have been a bestseller but I doubt that it was up to the standard of, say, E. M. Forster because the story was slight and full of coincidences driving the action - such as it was. The acting style was still influenced greatly by stage acting and in most cases comes across as hammy.
