Storyline

In 2003 author John Pearson interviews elderly John Burke and Susie Maxwell-Scott for his book 'The Gamblers', centering on the Clermont Club, a Mayfair casino run by ruthless zoo keeper John Aspinall some thirty years earlier. His chief client is John Bingham, Lord Lucan, ironically nicknamed Lucky due to his consistent losing streak. When Lucan's long-suffering wife Veronica protests at his profligacy he is violent and, under Aspinall's malign influence, tries - and fails - to discredit Veronica's sanity to gain custody of their children after their divorce. Whilst Veronica delights in the friendship of her nanny Sandra Rivett Lucan, once more led on by Aspinall, arrives at Veronica's house with murder in mind but, in the dark, accidentally kills Sandra, rather than intended victim Veronica. Realizing his mistake he attacks Veronica but she escapes and seeks help in a pub from where she is taken to hospital. As Lucan goes on the run Aspinall summons fellow club members and insists ...

Bland, unsatisfying retelling of an interesting story
14 October 2015 | by altereggo123See all my reviews

There's a lot of detail omitted from this two-part melodrama. Given its length, I would have thought it would have packed in more. Lord Lucan's colorful background and activities before this incident are omitted, so this becomes just a simple story of how a compulsive gambler, after a bitter divorce, plotted against his wife. But for the stately homes and tuxedos, it's a Lifetime movie about a woman in an abusive relationship.

The crime itself was not that complex, and the theories about what may have happened fairly obvious and not very numerous, so I'm not sure why they had to drag this out for as long as they did. I appreciate their faithfulness to the materials, but if they weren't going to do more with them, they could have at least made the film shorter.

The acting is excellent, and the posh British interiors include some great upholstery, but I'm not sure this is a good investment of movie-watching time. You could spend five minutes reading about Lord Lucan online and then pick a different film.
