Film information

Based on: The novel by Edith Wharton/Angela Huth/play by Alan Bennett

Story: An historical drama trilogy. 'The House of Mirth' is adapted from Edith Wharton's classic novel and directed by Terence Davies. New York at the beginning of the 20th century. Lily Bart (Gillian Anderson), a young woman looking to make a good marriage, finds herself drawn into a downward spiral when her honour and her love for Lawrence Selden (Eric Stoltz) prevent her from accepting the advances of wealthy banker Gus Trenor (Dan Aykroyd) and bring her into conflict with the social machinations of Bertha Dorset (Laura Linney). 'The Madness of King George' is a film version of the life of one of Britain's most eccentric kings, George III. After thirty years on the throne, George (Nigel Hawthorne) starts to behave in an odd manner, shouting obscenities at people, spouting garbled rubbish and attacking his wife's (Helen Mirren) young Mistress of the Robes, Lady Pembroke (Amanda Donohoe). The Prince of Wales (Rupert Graves) is determined to see that his father is declared unfit to rule so he can become Regent and denies the King access to those close to him. The Prime Minister is forced to intervene and sends his own doctor (Ian Holm) to help the King. Finally, in 'The Land Girls', whilst the men are sent abroad to battle against Hitler's army, England's women are left to do their bit on the homefront. In 1944, three young women - Stella (Catherine McCormack), Ag (Rachel Weisz) and Prue (Anna Friel) - are sent to work on a Dorset farm, where they are forced into an accelerated learning process, with thoughts of the war never far away.
