Cold Comfort Farm (DVD)
Malcolm Bradbury's BAFTA-winner with Kate Beckinsale, Joanna Lumley, Ian McKellen, Stephen Fry and Eileen Atkins.
Kate Beckinsale leads a star-studded cast as the tidy-minded heroine, Flora Poste, in Malcolm Bradbury's BAFTA-winning adaptation of Stella Gibbons' comedy classic.
Flora Poste (Kate Beckinsale) is the recently orphaned London society girl who ignores the advice of her mentor Mrs Smiley (Joanna Lumley) and moves to the country to live with relatives on their farm. An aspiring novelist, Flora soon realises that there is plenty of material for her stories on the decrepit farm - and she decides that she will bring her own sense of order to the chaotic and humorous characters that she meets.
