“Though it is spiritually uplifting, there’s the feel of an elegy to this English soldier’s story, a conscientious tone poem set in pastoral Yorkshire after the War to End All Wars.” – Rita Kempley, The Washington Post

“O’Connor directs Simon Gray’s script with great sensitivity. It’s all taken at a gentle pace, but dullness is averted by a sly humour…all the performances are accomplished, and that of Firth is brilliant.” – Time Out London

“Reticence, tact, restraint, respect…As a welcome respite from the hyper-kinetic hysteria in so many contemporary movies, A Month in the Country is a must-see.” – Andrew Sarris, The Village Voice

Pat O’Connor (Cal) directs the wonderful Simon Gray’s adaptation of J.L. Carr’s touching novel, A Month in the Country (1987): the simply beautiful tale of a pair of emotionally wounded World War I veterans (Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh in his film debut) who find some respite in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and in their supportive friendship. As they work, respectively, on the restoration of an ancient church mural and the possible unearthing of an archeological treasure, they also encounter the local vicar’s young wife (a lovely Natasha Richardson); between them, this trio reflects the many faces of love and longing. Featuring a score by Howard Blake in the style of early 20th-century music, available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.
