Two of acting's most brilliant talents take on the daunting role of renowned novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch. Kate Winslet portrays the young Murdoch in her heady years at Oxford-unaware of future life events, she says, "There is only one freedom of any consequence: that of the mind"-while Dame Judi Dench masterfully conveys the later years of aging and Alzheimer's. In the forefront is husband and caretaker John Bayley (played by Jim Broadbent), who remains devoted and loving even through his love's encumbered thinking and, at time, abuse. Based on Bayley's book Elegy for Iris. "A must-see canticle to married love"-Dallas Morning News. 90 min. DVD.
