This biographical/somewhat propagandist perspective of Sir Thomas 'Oswald' Mosley portrays Mosley as a "young man in a hurry" by day and a lecherous womanizing tomcat by night. Rebel with just cause(s), Mosley is transported from soldier to statesman to soldier, making marks in three political parties before finalizing to his own Fascist Party, presented much like a new reformer in an unreformed nation and with detailed programming that makes the film look much like a Biography Channel or History Channel-produced movie suitable for the Public Broadcasting System, Sundance and Independent Film Channels, or even late-night basic cable. But the movie does pose an image of an aristocratic hypocrite (He speaks as a Labour rep for lower working classes while dress in ritzy upper class garb and living at a manor house) or a contradiction usurer ("spheres A&B"), strewn with incidents of conflict with everybody he likes, loves, or respects. Mosley gets what he wants but doesn't get everything he needed.
