In Praise of a Plot
It stars Dominic West (whom I still think is faking his actual accent after watching him for so many years on the superb, The Wire) and Romola Garai (whose 2009 portral of Emma is stellar). My favorite character is Freddy (who is supposed to be less attractive -- as only Hollywood could dictate). He has the most evocative face -- all angles and shadows -- and his unrequited love often makes it way to the surface through e.e. cummings poetry. Check it out -- and stay with it; it unfolds slowly but very well.
