Description
Two "perfect couples"—one English, one American—are friends. Yet behind the proper Edwardian façade of their friendship lurk passions, intrigues, and complex social and sexual relationships. Set in the years before World War I, this ravishingly beautiful production of Ford Madox Ford's classic novel stars Jeremy Brett. It was filmed for Britain's ITV and seen on Masterpiece Theatre in 1982–83.

"Brett's elegant, lightly worn, upper-class manner made him a natural television choice for such roles as ... the upright-seeming but morally debilitated Captain Ashburnham in Ford Madox Ford's The Good Soldier for Granada Television (1981)."—The Independent

"An intriguing, elliptical puzzle of a film.... [which] nicely captures the complicated flash-forward/flash-back, impressionistic literary style that Ford pioneered, while delivering some interesting performances in this tale of rich, duplicitous couples who lie to themselves and each other.... It lends itself well to Ford's cinematic literary style, coming out as one of the better Masterpiece Theatre imports."—DVD Talk
