Great adaptation of a good novel!
27 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joanna Trollope's novel "The Rector's Wife" has been made into a inspirational and moving film. Centering on the family struggles of a vicar who refuses to listen to his wife and children, this film shows the slow decay of a stagnant marriage. Lindsay Duncan's portrayal of Anna lights up the screen, showing a emotional yet understated performance. Jonathan Coy plays Peter, a man who has shut himself off from the world to avoid the pain of failure while his wife and two children pay the price. The story is told with a sensitivity and clarity that is lacking with most productions today. Finally available on DVD in the spring, "The Rector's Wife" is yet another great production from across the pond.
