Memoir of the lives of a family growing up on a post World War I British estate headed up by a strong disciplinarian, her daughter, her inventor husband, their ten year old son and his older sister. Through the household comes a number of suitors hoping to impress the young woman, including an aviator. When the elder woman's son shows up at the estate with his French fiancé, everything gets thrown into turmoil. The young boy takes a sudden interest in her sexual allure and his father is disturbed by his own non-Victorian feelings. Written by John Sacksteder

Trivia The film is based on the memoirs of Denis Forman, a British television mogul born 10/13/1917, and is presumed to be set in 1927 when Denis Forman turned 10 years old (the age of Fraser Pettigrew in the film). See more »
Goofs While Fraser at age 3 crawls out of his bedroom onto the roof, his older brother, young Rollo in short pants with suspenders (in a shot from behind at 02:27), is on the lawn holding a tennis racket, but (at around 28 mins) the scene cuts to a frontal shot where young Rollo's hands are empty. Later (at around 33 mins), he holds the tennis racket again. See more »
