Product Description

A biting satire based on Angus Wilson’s acclaimed novel

A darkly comic, take-no-prisoners satire, Anglo-Saxon Attitudes skewers British social and academic hypocrisy to the very core. Richard Johnson (The Camomile Lawn) stars as Gerald Middleton, a distinguished, retired historian coming to terms with his life’s folly. As a student, Middleton witnessed the unearthing of the Melpham idol, a pagan fertility figure that electrified modern medieval scholarship by turning up in the grave of a 7th-century bishop. He also began an affair with Dollie (Tara Fitzgerald) -- the fiancée of his best friend, the man who had privately confessed to planting the idol as a hoax. While trying to reveal the truth, Middleton wrestles with his monstrously overbearing wife and their three emotionally dysfunctional children.

Based on the novel by Angus Wilson, the story teems with outlandish characters engaged in all manner of deceit, especially the most damning of all: self-deception.

Also featuring Douglas Hodge, Elizabeth Spriggs, Daniel Craig, and Kate Winslet in one of her first screen roles.

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE biography of screenwriter Andrew Davies, program previews, and cast filmographies.
