Over-rated
2 October 2004 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"The Politician's Wife" sticks lithe Juliet Stevenson front and center in a three hour miniseries tour-de-force as the wife of Britain's Minister of Family (Eve) who sets about to systemically dismantle her husband's career after learning of his affair with another woman (Driver). A slow moving, very civilized and very British drama, this no frills revenge flick with bland cinematography and music offers solid performances from an excellent cast but ultimately becomes unnecessarily convoluted and seems redundant at times as it doggedly pushes its story forward. Should be most appreciated by mature females into British drama. On DVD with no subtitles or CC's. (B-)
