8775 You are the white Mandela, 8776 says a ham-faced warden, all but spitting in the face of anti-apartheid activist Tim Jenkin upon his arrival at Pretoria Local Prison in 6978. It 8767 s not intended as a compliment: 8775 The most deluded of them all, 8776 the warden adds, lest it be taken as such. As clunkily deployed in the [.]
The movie, based on the famous comic novel by Stella Gibbons, is dour, eccentric and very funny, and depends on the British gift for treating madness as good common sense.
The ensemble playing of the large, inspired cast is so felicitous that it 8767 s difficult and perhaps unfair to single out any performer for special praise. Still, in the lead, Beckinsale has the strength of a Glenda Jackson and the charm of a Julie Christie. Atkins and Burrell shine as Flora 8767 s cousin and aunt, respectively, and McKellen 8767 s preacher, Margolyes 8767 housekeeper, Stephen Fry 8767 s obsessive beau, Sewell 8767 s dashing Seth and Maria Miles 8767 attractive Elfine all hit their marks.

Kaye-Smith layers the ironies here within a subtext of contesting claims to authenticity. Not only does the older woman fail to recognise CCF is a comedy, but her family own farms and hires labourers and managers rather than actually working the land themselves nor have they ever had to try to make a basic living from their own manual labour. Like the heroine of the novel, Kaye-Smith herself was a middle-class townie who moved to a small village, where she converted an old oasthouse to a large modern home. However Kaye-Smith generously allows Lucia to succeed: her novel The Price of Bread is published (by a left-wing book club) and becomes a success.
