Cause Celebre (DVD)
Helen Mirren gives a searing performance alongside David Morrissey in this powerful adaptation of Terence Rattigan's radio and stage play. Based on the true story of a crime of passion that shocked 1930s Britain, Cause Cálá¨bre features support from Harry Andrews, David Suchet, Oliver Ford Davies, Clive Swift and Geoffrey Bayldon, and is adapted for television by Ken Taylor (Lady Chatterley) and directed by the BAFTA-winning John Gorrie. Alma, the unhappy young wife of distinguished architect Francis Rattenbury, a man in his mid-sixties, begins an aff air with the couple's eighteen-year-old handyman, George. As the affair grows in intensity, the naá¯ve and inexperienced George finds himself possessed by an uncontrollable jealousy; the result is murder, and a harrowing courtroom drama that will scandalise a nation and engulf Alma in despair.
