A tale of love and revenge … and stamps
“Elaborately designed fantasy fun” —The Observer (U.K.)
Moist von Lipwig (Richard Coyle, Lorna Doone) is a con man and a charlatan—and he loves every minute of it. From confidence tricks to far-reaching financial fraud, von Lipwig revels in hoodwinking, fleecing, and otherwise ripping off the citizens of Ankh-Morpork. When the law finally catches up to him, the city’s shrewd leader, Lord Vetinari (Charles Dance, Game of Thrones), offers von Lipwig a choice: he can take over the derelict post office . . . or suffer a painful death.
The reluctant postmaster finds himself in charge of thousands of undelivered letters, commanding a charmingly deranged staff of misfits, and at odds with corrupt businessman Reacher Gilt (David Suchet, Agatha Christie’s Poirot), who will stop at nothing to crush his competition. Along the way, he falls under the spell of the icy Adora Dearheart (Claire Foy, Little Dorrit), much to her chagrin. In this delightful adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel, Moist von Lipwig needs every ounce of his considerable charm and cunning to restore the post office, trounce Gilt, and win Adora’s affections.
It is not surprising that this one is very good - it's one of Pratchett's best books.
What surprises me is that I keep rewatching it...
Wonderfully done adaptation of a Terry Pratchett story. Not an easy feat, but they did it! Bravo!Published 19 days ago by Daniel T. Darmody
I read the book several year ago, and sequel. Most movies are never as good the book in my opinion. But this movie was different. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Shawn Swaim

It is extremely difficult to translate Terry Pratchett's book into a movie, but creators of this movie got it right.Published 2 months ago by Natalia
As always Terry Prtchetts quirkiness comes through. Love the dry humor and the characters. Well acted if not top of the line budget.Published 3 months ago by Kristanne Willden
