A look at life in a very specific time amnd place with solid psychology and acting
23 February 2010 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

You'll feel like you've really gotten to know real people after watching the four episodes of this solid UK mini-series based on a 1990 novel by John McGahern which I have not read. The story focuses on the psychological and social dynamics of a stern, self-righteous IRA veteran and widower on his two sons and three daughters and eventually his second wife. Generally, he cannot relate to the men in his life while the women believe in his basic goodness despite his uncompromising gruff exterior. It is left to the viewer to make their own assessment, much as we would with a real-life acquaintance. Underlying themes include the long term effects of being involved in brutal combat, the sadistic undertones in child discipline and the consequences of not being able to persuade loved ones to follow advice even when it would be in their own self interest. Most of the psychology applies as well today as in the late 40's, early 50's time frame of the story.
