A Masterpiece Theatre Presentation
James Wilby, Xavier Deluc, Serena Gordon, John Mills and Anna Massey star in this gripping adaptation of Charles Dickens' immortal story of love and honor set against the fiery backdrop of the French Revolution.
Living in exile in England, beautiful young Lucie Manette is pursued by two suitors: fellow French exile Charles Darnay and dissolute Englishman Sydney Carton. Even though Sydney openly declares that he would make the ultimate sacrifice for her, Lucie chooses Charles, unaware of his secret past and noble heritage. As the French Revolution explodes, Charles heads for Paris to help a former servant in trouble and discovers that the Reign of Terror is far worse than he realized. Anarchy is rife. Justice is no more and Charles is captured by a crowd thirsty for the blood of aristocrats. The guillotine beckons - as does the long-ago promise that Sydney made to his beloved Lucie.
