Gormenghast  (DVD)
Stunning BBC adaptation of the Mervyn Peake classic, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ian Richardson, Zoe Wanamaker, Stephen Fry, Christopher Lee et al.
The kingdom of Gormenghast rejoices when its ruler, Lord Sepulchrave (Ian Richardson), produces a son and heir: Titus, 77th Earl of Groan. However, scheming kitchen boy Steerpike (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) himself dreams of taking power, and sets about driving Sepulchrave insane. He also seduces Titus' sister, Lady Fuchsia, planning to seize the kingdom through her. It seems that Steerpike cannot fail in his plans - only the timid Titus himself, young and inexperienced, stands in his way...
