Description
An upper-crust British marriage comes undone in 1988's dark comedy A Handful of Dust, starring Kristin Scott Thomas and James Wilby. When Brenda begins an affair with an idle young rake (Rupert Graves) who comes with a shopkeeping mother (horrors!) called Mrs. Beaver, their life of ease takes a tragic turn. The all-star cast (including Anjelica Huston, Judi Dench [as Mrs Beaver], Stephen Fry, and Alec Guinness) is complemented by lush cinematography and lavish, Oscar-nominated costumes. The second adaptation from Waugh's brilliant, biting ouevre aired on Masterpiece Theatre in 1987; an uproarious satire of politics and the press, Scoop chronicles the misadventures of William Boot, a cluelesss nature columnist mistakenly thrust into the role of war correspondent and sent to cover a supposed revolution in the African republic of Ishmaelia.

"Everything about the novel has been perfectly realized … superlative … casting throughout is impeccable…. The film's delights are everywhere."—LATimes on A Handful of Dust

"Grade: A. Exceptionally well done…. Shrewd, mean, and funny."—Entertainment Weekly on Scoop
