Atmospheric slow-moving historical drama
18 October 1998 | by maggie-9See all my reviews

A fictional story based on a painting by English 19C painter, Philip Wilson Steer. Depicts the growing attraction between Steer and a married woman amid the confines of Victorian society. Slow-moving but well-acted with beautiful images of the Norfolk coast, it ultimately has an unsatisfying ending and you might wonder what the point was. Nevertheless, worth watching.
