Alice (Wilson) goes back to the scene of her childhood trauma after 15 years, to lay a claim to the Yorkshire farm that was promised her, but her brother Joe (Stanley) insists it should go to him.

Lady Susan Vernon (Beckinsale) is penniless, selfish and keen to marry off her nelfected daughter to the nearest wealthy dolt, but she's also smart, witty and beautiful. Stillman gives a wickedly droll adaptation of Jane Austen's short novel, choicely acted by the whole ensemble.

The true story of Donald Crowhurst (Firth), a weekend sailor who persuaded an investor to build him a yacht so that he could enter a round-the-world yacht race, with disastrous consequences.
