In the 1840s, Cranford is ruled by the ladies. They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town.
Professional motorcycle racer Bud Clay heads from New Hampshire to California to race again. Along the way he meets various needy women who provide him with the cure to his own loneliness, but only a certain woman from his past will truly satisfy him.
This engaging dramatic love story was my first taste of the beautiful & captivating Cherie Lunghi. A film which tugs at the heart strings of the viewer and takes them from the thrill & excitement of love to it's deceit and betrayal. This enthralling 2-part movie has kept me returning to view it over 2 decades and I never tire of watching it.
Recommended as an excellent introduction to the charms of Miss Lunghi, with notable performances of Jonathan Pryce and Carmen du Sautoy.
