Description
With a script by playwright Alan Bennett, this pungent farce is set in in a small town in postwar England. Michael Palin is the perfect foil for Maggie Smith as they desperately try to conceal a black market pig from a vigilant food inspector. The 1984 film garnered BAFTAs awards for Smith (Best Actress), Denholm Elliott (Best Supporting Actor), and Liz Smith (Best Supporting Actress).

"Blissfully funny. An all-round triumph."New Statesman

"Ripe, rude, and robust."Daily Telegraph

"It will shake the rafters with laughter."Evening Standard

"Not since the end of the collaboration between Roy and John Boulting ('The Man in the Cocked Hat,' 'I'm Alright, Jack') and the golden age of the Ealing Studios has there been a stylish English comedy of such high-hearted, self-interested knavery.... [Palin's] open-faced innocence always contains a hint of something lewd being thought, though left unspoken, and the incomparable Miss Smith [is] an actress capable of playing both the original Lady Macbeth and Joyce Chilvers, Lady Macbeth's ferociously funny, dainty, lower-middle-class spin-off. "NYTimes
