Title from container

Based on the novel by Andrea Levy

Originally produced as a television movie broadcast as an episode of Masterpiece classic in 2009

Naomie Harris, David Oyelowo, Ruth Wilson, Benedict Cumberbatch

Explores the lives of two couples, one Jamaican and the other English, whose worlds intertwine in post-World War II Britain, at a turning point in the long relationship between the two countries. It is a story of tender emotion and sparkling wit, of crossings taken and passages lost, of shattering compassion and of reckless optimism in the face of insurmountable barriers
