A Handful Of Dust

Evelyn Waugh's satiric novel on the decline of the British empire has been filmed in a very civilised manner. When the decent but very dull James Wilby finds out that his beautiful but cool wife (Kristin Scott Thomas) is having a serious affair with the dashing but penniless Rupert Graves, he goes exploring in South America. A wry, mannered drama in the tradition of Masterpiece Theatre. With Anjelica Huston and Alec Guinness.
