All Passions Spent


I am sooooo excited. One of my favorite movies is finally on DVD. It is a BBC version of Vita Sackville-West "All Passions Spent". Dame Wendy Hiller plays 85-year-old Lady Slane. It is set in post-Victorian England.  Lady Slane is a new widow trying to free herself from society’s expectations upon the death of her politically prominent husband. She purchases and renovates a cottage in the Hampstead countryside. Unfortunately to the shock of her children. It is about finding herself. That seasons in one life were you do not have husband or young children to please. But mostly what I love is her time in her new (old) cottage. It is very English and charming. Nothing objectionable at all. It is light but with a deep message at the same time.

By the way netflix has it.

I added this to my Netflix queue. I really enjoyed Under the Greenwood Tree, that I think you recommended at Jody's place. Thanks again for the title.


I'm adding it to my DVD list. Thanks Clarice!


This movie reminds me a little of Shell Seekers, don't you think? Except it's an English version. Mom


I've never heard of this dvd. Hope you enjoy it.


Thank you Clarice; I have all the movies you've recommended on my list from Blockbuster and the ones I've watched so far have been great!
