This was originally shown on British TV in four episodes, each one told from the perspective of one of the women (Martha, Leah, Hannah and Joanna). The repeat edited these down into one film, running the stories together. See more »
This amazing British mini-series is a must see if you can find it. I am not sure if it ever appeared on American TV, which is a shame. Each performance is only more incredible than the last, and some, such as those of Kathy Burke and Kerry Fox, are towering. One's respect for those actresses leaps. The series grips the dark and grungy industrial world of the time, with its religious sects, with unsparing clarity, and equally unsparing full frontal female nudity, which is perhaps why it has not been seen on American TV. I recommend keeping a "favorite" search for it on eBay, and hoping you are lucky enough to find a copy. Technically, the DVD version looks more like a VHS. The soundtrack is in good stereo, and the music is appropriate and beautifully written. This is a sleeper gem that is worth searching for.
