Brilliant
21 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Brilliant acting, photography, dialogue, you name it. This is a fantastic production from the BBC and Andrew Davies does it again with his great screen writing. Rafe Spall is wonderful as Keith, providing a sensitive and genuine spark of reality into his performance. Definitely a talent to watch. The actor who plays Keith as an old man also deserves an award for being absolutely believable. The action centres around the obscenity trial for D. H. Lawrence's 'Lady Chatterly's Lover', where two of the fictitious jurors find the book somewhat inspirational. Like the book, the programme doesn't modestly shy away from sex scenes. Instead they are quite graphic and clear, and yet they are in no way smutty or gratuitous. They are an integral part of the story and it is an artistically brave choice to have included them. This is a great production and will be one of the BBC's classics.
