Synopsis

Love and loyalty come into conflict with dramatic historical events in this faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens' much-filmed novel. During the violence of the French Revolution, disillusioned English lawyer Sydney Carton is called upon to save young French aristocrat Charles Darnay from treason charges, but in the process falls for the nobleman’s fiancée. As the French uprising becomes increasingly bloodthirsty all three are caught up in the confusion, ultimately facing difficult dilemmas that lead some to heroic acts of sacrifice. This redemptive drama boasts strong performances and vivid period details.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
