Adapted By Andrew Davies From The Acclaimed Novel By Sarah Waters
Smitten by music hall life, and by the beautiful male impersonator Kitty Butler (Keeley Hawes), Nan Astley (Rachel Stirling) leaves her family's Whitstable oyster parlor and follows her heart to London. There she finds unimaginable joy - and misery - as she explores the secret side of fin de siecle life.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Sarah Waters and adapted by Andrew Davies (Bridget Jones's Diary, Doctor Zhivago), this powerful BBC drama is both a frank depiction of lesbianism and a witty and moving account of a young woman who will win your heart while searching for her own. Also starring Anna Chancellor (Pride and Prejudice), Jodhi May (The Last of the Mohicans), Hugh Bonneville (Iris) and John Bowe (Poldark).
