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.
Already seen two of his books made movie & looking forward to this.
Not the wry wit found in the books but still enjoyable. Read more
Wonderful cast and marvelously filmed, great adaptation of the book, and a fun cameo by Terry Pratchett at the end.Published 24 days ago by Christine Torres
This series is not an adaptation of the book as much as it is simply an out and out exploitation of Pratchett's popularity and characters. Read morePublished 1 month ago by McJay
