Trivia

"Elspeth Huxley: A Biography" by Christine Nicholls, published in 2007, names the killer after 66 years. Coincidently, there was renewed interest in the murder after fashion designer Isabella Blow, granddaughter of Delves Broughton, took her own life the same year. See more »

Corporal punishment scenes.
31 October 2000 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Although I found it an extremely interesting story line, I found the corporal punishment scenes rather disturbing, I definitely found them to be very graphic and may I say a little over the top. I am anti corporal punishment and I think that anyone with like views would therefore find this film rather disturbing.
