Product Details

The film follows 17-year-old Cassandra Mortmain (Romola Garai) and the fortunes of her eccentric family as they struggle to survive in a decaying English castle. Her father (Bill Nighy) is desperate to repeat the spectacular success of his first novel, but has not written a word in 12 years; her exquisite sister Rose (Rose Byrne) can only rail against their fate; and their Bohemian step-mother Topaz (Tara Fitzgerald) is a nudist and no help at all. Salvation comes in the form of their handsome, new American landlord Simon Cotton (Henry Thomas) and his brother Neil (Marc Blucas). Although initially repelled by Simon, Rose is determined to make him fall in love with her. But events spiral out of control and, before the summer ends, there will be frustrated desire, first love and broken hearts. Extras include Deleted Scenes, Commentary and an interview with Ramola Garai. Newly remastered.
