Description
Cherbourg-Octeville Festival of Irish & British Film for the role of Edith, a free-spirited, naive girl who accepts a marriage proposal from her boyfriend (Nick Moran) before fully realizing his controlling ways. Emotionally unfulfilled in her marriage, Edith seeks out an old friend, Frederick Bywaters (Ioan Gruffudd) and soon embarks on a love affair. When Frederick's attempt to rescue Edith from her domineering husband spins out of control, envy turns to murder in this true story of a woman caught in the middle of a sexual scandal that spares no one.

"Provides a take on the complexities of the real-life case of Edie Thompson and Freddy Bywaters—and Edwardian society’s baying for blood in the wake of a crime of passion.... Though elegantly filmed, incandescent and dreamlike, it is the subtle and compelling performances by Moran, Gruffud, and Little which really make this historical postscript fizz with scorching sensuality, desire and desperation. And out of the three of them, it is Moran who impresses most ... by infusing a role that could have so easily been that of a mere victim with a superlative soulfulness and yearning that elevates proceedings to an altogether more tragic level."—BBC

"Excellent performances."—Evening Standard

"A powerful punch.... There is much to savor."—Variety
