The Thirteenth Tale - As Seen on the BBC (DVD)
The Thirteenth Tale is a haunting psychological mystery, adapted by Oscar winning screenwriter Christopher Hampton from Diane Setterfield's bestselling novel. Biographer Margaret Lea (Olivia Colman - Broadchurch) is summoned to the Yorkshire home of reclusive, dying novelist Vida Winter (Vanessa Redgrave Atonement) who has handpicked Margaret to write her biography. Though initially hesitant, as Vida has a reputation for distorting facts in interviews, Margaret becomes fascinated by her previously untold story. As the novelist recounts her dark and disturbing childhood, Margaret is compelled to finally face the trauma of her own past. But as time runs out, Margaret, desperate to hear the end of Vida's story, begins to wonder if she is hearing the confessions of a murderer. Also stars Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Steven Mackintosh (Kick Ass 2, Luther) and Robert Pugh (Game of Thrones, Shameless).
