Great adaptation of a good novel!

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.
