Hard Edged Version of Rattigan
16 February 2018 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Compared to the Vivien Leigh version of the classic, this has a steely. edge. Penelope Wilton is a hard-nosed wheeler dealer who wants the best for herself and will be prepared to fight for it. She receives her ex-husband politely enough, but turns down his offer of reconciliation flat, in full knowledge that it will not work. In the end she understands her alliance with Freddle will not work either: Freddie is too self-centred, despite being a good physical lover. Left on her own, Wilton goes through the complicated task of filling Freddie's suitcase, prior to leaving it for him to pick up at Charing Cross.
