Viewers will recognize Judi Dench as Mrs. Edgehill in this BBC production, part of the Noel Coward collection. The Edgehills are getting ready to leave the British isle of Samola, to return to England, when Mr. Edgehill gets an assignment to a new post, out in the middle of no-where, right at the start of WW II. His wife is quite disappointed, and must decide if she will accompany him. Ian Holm plays Mr. Edgehill, and had been in films Chariots of Fire, Lord of the Rings, and the Fifth Element. Amanda Pays (Vivienne) has done a whole lot of American television. Viewers may also remember Rachel Gurney (Lady Cynthia). Gurney was also in Upstairs, Downstairs. Some good outdoor photography of what must be Sri Lanka, acc to IMDb. The director ( Gavin Millar) doesn't really go to any effort to show us that its a period piece, except for the dialogue, but its an enjoyable watch. Has an un-satisfying ending, but I guess we're used to the American Hollywood endings, where everything is neatly wrapped up.
