Description

Based on the novel by Evelyn Waugh

Paul Pennyfeather, a dedicated divinity student set upon a quiet life of contemplation as a priest, is unceremoniously expelled from Oxford University through no fault of his own. This kick-starts a series of disastrous events that no-one, least of all Paul, could have anticipated.
Without a private fortune to fall back on, Paul is forced to take a position as a teacher at a substandard boarding school in rural Wales. All too quickly it becomes apparent that Paul is not a natural disciplinarian. He finds scant comfort in drinking – to excess – with the other teachers.

Things start to look up, however, when Paul meets Margot Beste-Chetwynde, a wealthy widow and a mother to one of the boys at the school. Could it be that the attraction Paul feels for Margot is returned? Could his fortunes be changing?

Special Features:

  • Three Behind the Scenes Featurettes, Photo Gallery

Critic Reviews:

  • “Waugh is tricky to get right on screen, but there was barely a bum note in this lovingly crafted hour of elegant, acidulous entertainment. One suspects Mr W would have approved” – Daily Telegraph (UK)
  • “Just when you think you know where the plot is going, suddenly, bam, nope, going in a different direction.” – TV Equals
  • “Most pleasant, perhaps, is the sense that there is a kind of order even in a chaotic world, a force that brings these characters together to their benefit, though much might be suffered along the way.” – Los Angeles Times
