Pat O’Connor (Cal) directs the wonderful Simon Gray’s adaptation of J.L. Carr’s touching novel, A Month in the Country (1987): the simply beautiful tale of a pair of emotionally wounded World War I veterans (Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in his film debut) who find some respite in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and in their supportive friendship. As they work, respectively, on the restoration of an ancient church mural and the possible unearthing of an archeological treasure, they also encounter the local vicar’s young wife (a lovely Natasha Richardson); between them, this trio reflects the many faces of love and longing. Featuring a score by Howard Blake in the style of early 20th-century music, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
