Sympathy for the old codger...
29 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Set in both the 1950's and the 1980's, A Passionate Woman follows the story of Betty as she recalls her love affair with Craze. The setting is Leeds in the 80's, where Betty tells her son, Mark, about her affair with Polish neighbour, Craze, in the 50's. We then flashback to her dull housewife-life in the 50's, where her days revolve around looking after baby Mark, and cooking for her husband, Donald. All this changes, when she meets Craze at the local dance club, and later finds out he lives downstairs. After what seems like 5 minutes of resistance, Betty gives in to his charm, and the affair begins. That is until his wife, Moira finds out, and shoots him at the fairground. All this while she's pregnant with his child!

As we feel sorry for Betty, keeping it in all these years, we forget that she was, of course, committing adultery, and instead of siding with Donald, we blame him for the affair. It's only at the end, when it comes out that he knew about the affair all along, and nevertheless stuck by her side, we finally sympathise with him. As does Betty. So la-di-da, son gets married, Betty and Donald are back together, happy ending for all, hurrah!

I thought A Passionate Woman was thoroughly enjoyable, ignoring the fact that Billie Piper's Yorkshire accent was slipping throughout. Her chemistry with Theo James, (Craze) however, was very believable. Definitely recommend it!
