The Evelyn Waugh Collection DVD
SKU ID #316269
Novelist Evelyn Waugh takes on British society with wit and heart in the two novels whose adaptations make up this two disc set. Kristin Scott Thomas is left with "A Handful of Dust" (1988) when boredom with distant husband James Wilby drives her to an affair with penniless bounder Robert Graves. Anjelica Huston, Judi Dench and Alec Guinness co-star in this searing drama. Then besotted editor Denholm Elliott mistakes small-town gossip columnist Michael Maloney for a seasoned war correspondent and sends him out to land a "Scoop" (1989) on the war in Africa somewhere.
