The History of Mr Polly
Customers who bought this item also bought
The legendary H.G. Wells created this fanciful Victorian tale of Alfred Polly (Lee Evans - There's Something About Mary), an ordinary man who, rather than pursuing his dreams, follows a conventional path in life and finds himself desperately unhappy. Burdened with a nagging wife (Anne-Marie Duff - Notes on a Scandal) and a failing business, his unbearable desperation spurs him to take violently drastic action to end it all - but action is exactly what is needed to transform the existence of a weak-willed fool into the life of a gallant, adventurous hero.

This video version of the novel succeeds in a pleasant,understated way.The settings are attractive,the characters amusing as well as genuine.
The opening scene on the rocky headland,where Mr Polly considers his life and its pluses and minuses,is both moving and spellbinding.The players are well cast,with the villain/s awesome and the goodies believable.This is a very enjoyable film and one that could be watched more than once.
