Feast of July

THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM THE PAST.

After suffering a tragedy, Isabella Ford (Embeth Davidtz) is taken in by the Wainwright family and is subsequently courted by the patriarch’s (Tom Bell) three sons. Another Merchant-Ivory production that takes place in Victorian England but actually might have needed James Ivory in the director’s seat. The tragic story is well worth a look, especially for fans of the genre, and the acting is not at all shabby… but there is nothing exceptional or terribly moving about this production and that goes for Davidtz as well.

1995-Britain-U.S. 113 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Christopher Menaul. Novel: H.E. Bates. Cast: Embeth Davidtz (Isabella Ford), Tom Bell (Ben Wainwright), Gemma Jones (Mrs. Wainwright), James Purefoy, Greg Wise, Kenneth Anderson.
