Two wealthy, handsome couples- one English, one American- meet at a German spa and forge an immediate bond. Through nine seasons at the spa, the splendid foursome share the same tastes, the same desires, and the same elegantly perfect lives. But in a series of startling time and perspective shifts, we learn, little by little, just how far short of perfection their lives really were.
Faithfully adapted from Ford Madox Ford's impressionistic masterpiece, this powerful drama explores a tangle of religion, sex, and Edwardian-era social mores in a highly original way. Starring Jeremy Brett, Robin Ellis, Susan Fleetwood, Vickery Turner, Elizabeth Garvie, Pauline Moran, and John Ratzenberger. As seen on Masterpiece Theatre.
