An Unlikely Affair
8 July 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Classically handsome and sophisticated army officer played by Simon Shepherd is married to beautiful, voluptuous Jennifer Ehle. He starts an affair with a whining, plain little local girl from the Northern Irish barracks where he is based. And it's all downhill from there!
