DVD of Anglo-Saxon Attitudes by Angus Wilson
7 May 2005 | by blyth-1See all my reviews

Though I missed this when it was first shown (back in 1992) this was a fine production of a fine novel. Elizabeth Spriggs's performance was excellent as the sad, well-meaning Inge. The other characters were also portrayed with sharp insight. The wide ranging settings of this gripping story were projected in photography of distinction. It was a great pleasure to be reminded of Wilson's witty and engaging novel in this faithful representation after twenty years or so since I read it avidly. One of our greatest 20th century novelists, Willson's works deserve to be household names. Are there similar DVDs of Hemlock and After, The Old Men of the Zoo and others? Is this DVD available for purchase? I can't seem to find where.
