Some things are just better the second time around.
Reckless: The Movie picks up a year after Anna leaves Richard for Owen. Anna has divorced him, and has accepted Owen's proposal of marriage. Richard, not meant to know, finds out and does everything in his power to stop them, including hiring Owen's ex-fiancee as the new registrar. (It turns out that Owen called off that wedding five months before he met Anna.) Complicating matters for Richard is that his parents have been invited to the wedding by Anna. Anna's thorn is her younger sister Barbara, who feels that she divorced Richard too quickly and that she should wait. Francesca Annis is shining again as Anna, a woman still torn, although more subtly this time, by two men: one she despises, one she adores. Robson Green, while having only slightly less to do in this movie than he did in the series, is wondrous, and still smolders on screen; his performance is full of fire and passion. Together, Annis and Green still make for a sparkling, combustible couple. Michael Kitchen is terrifically rotten as the smug bastard who will stop at nothing to keep Anna and Owen apart; one genuinely begins to despise him almost as much as Anna. Kudos also go to Geoffrey Palmer and Pauline Yates as Richard's parents, David Bradley as Owen's father, and Conor Mullen as John McGinley, also torn between his career aspirations dependent on Richard and his friendship and loyalty to Owen.
If you can, buy this, rent this or tape this, because you will find yourself enveloped in a fantastic story with sharp wit, cutting humor and gifted actors and acting.
