outstanding!
10 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Juliet Stevenson delivers one of the best performances I've ever seen. The Politician's wife -- about an upper-crust British MP who has an affair with a pretty young thing (Minnie Driver!), and how his wife deals with it -- is an outstanding production. In this Blue Dress and Cigars age of American politics, I would think it would do very well over here. Unfortunately, aside from some brief play on PBS, it hasn't been given much exposure here. Direct plea to whomever holds the rights: if you can't release this in theaters (and you really ought to), please at least make the video available in the States.
