Drama, Period and Historical
Katherine has been forced into a loveless arranged marriage, parceled off with a worthless plot of land, to the cold and frequently absent Alexander. Instructed by her strict father-in-law to keep to the house and study the bible during these periods, Katherine finds herself bored senseless. Eventually daring to explore the grounds, sparks fly between her and Sebastian, a boisterous farmhand, and before long she embarks on a passionate affair. When rumours begin to spread of their activities however, Katherine is forced to act decisively to maintain her social position. Adapted from a 19th century Russian novella (and nothing to do with Shakespeare), this is an engrossing, claustrophobic and provocative drama about illicit love.
Forget the polite decorum and prissy dresses you may associate with period dramas - this latest adaptabrings to life the brutal intensity of the book.
