Storyline

In the 1920s, decades after the troubled and unhappy marriage between Soames Forsyte and the beautiful pianist Irene Heron came to an end, Soames and Irene have both remarried and moved on. Irene is happily married with a son to Jolyon Forsyte - causing Jolyon to be even further considered as an outcast and traitor by the Forsytes - and Soames to the beautiful, yet very unfaithful, Frenchwoman Annette. With Annette, Soames also finally has the child he so desperately wanted, and, at the age of 18, his daughter Fleur knows exactly how to get whatever she wants from doting and indulgent father. The pain of the past is however once again about to resurface as Fleur, despite Soames's efforts, meets and falls deeply in love with Irene and Jolyon's 18-year-old son Jon. As the young lovers embark on their passionate love affair, they have no idea of the obsession, unhappiness, adultery, rape, and possessive, unrequited love that lie in their parents' past.

Quotes

Soames Forsyte: My whole life, I have dedicated to you - to making you happy!
Fleur Forsyte: But you got it wrong, didn't you? You thought I cared about dresses and frippery. I'd have married Jon in my underclothes, and because of you - YOU! - he stopped loving me. The one thing I really wanted!

Love Denied
1 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Damien Lewis and Gina McKee return to the small screen as Soames and Irene Forsyte, an ex marriage still fuelled by jealousy and revulsion. It is nineteen years since Irene walked out on brutish controlling husband Soames following her traumatic rape and is now happily married with Soames cousin Jolyon Forsyte and their son Jon. Soames meanwhile has also married again, to the beautiful French ex-shop girl Annette and have a stunning daughter Fleur, a spoilt child accustomed to getting her own way. So when,by a chance meeting she sets eyes on the handsome Jon Forsyte at an art gallery she makes up her mind to have him, oblivious to past that lingers between their parents Soames and Irene. The couple begin a passionate affair ripping apart old wounds that were thought to be dead and buried.
