My Brother Jonathan is a 1985 BBC five part mini-series that relates the story of an idealistic doctor, Jonathan Dakkers, in the coal country of England during the period around WW1 and a love triangle.
In a Florence pensione circa 1900 with English guests, George Emerson (Julian Sands) and his dad (Denholm Elliott) offer their rooms with views to Lucy Honeychurch (Helena Bonham Carter) and her chaperone, Charlotte Bartlett (Dame Maggie Smith). Lucy and George get acquainted, but Lucy returns to England. George and Lucy meet again, but now she's engaged.
Helena Bonham Carter,
Imogen Stubbs dispells an air of innocence and angelical nature that is very much becoming for this film. In the end, she's not naive, just in love; plainly so. How she deals with this love and, on the other hand with herself is a humane and nostalgic tour on how life usually is. Not to be missed.
