The Rainbow (DVD)
Imogen Stubbs stars in the BBCs critically lauded 1988 adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's The Rainbow.
Ursula Brangwen ( Imogen Stubbs) is the pretty but naive daughter of a wealthy country squire, one of five children living in the Nottinghamshire mining heartland at the turn of the century.
From a wide-eyed, optimistic sixteen-year-old to fully grown woman, the drama follows Ursula through the trials and tribulations of her burgeoning personal relationships in her quest to find fulfilment for her developing passionate and sensual nature.
This highly acclaimed three part mini-series was Imogen Stubb's break-through role, while the supporting cast includes Kate Buffery as Ursula's swimming instructor Winifred Inger and Tom Bell as Old Tom Brangwen. Martin Wenner plays soldier Anton Skrebensky with Jon Finch as Uncle Tom.
Atmospheric, sensuous and haunting, this production is widely considered one of the finest adaptations of D.H. Lawrence's controversial and ground-breaking novel, considered one of the greatest works of English literature.
