The Affair


Time Out says

An efficiently performed but finally rather dull (and very televisual) study of a neglected historical subject: the reception of black GIs in Britain during WWII. The racist slurs and aggression which the soldiers endure come less from the rural, middle-class Brits, and more from their white American counterparts; indeed, Fox, whose husband is off in Europe, even goes so far as to contemplate, guiltily, an affair with the impeccably well-mannered Vance. Things turn horribly, though predictably sour.
