Separate Lies

Movies, Drama

Time Out says

Viewers who blanch at extreme Anglomania, be forewarned: writer-director Julian Fellowes's infidelity melodrama features so many crises handled with stiff upper lips that you might feel like you've consumed an entire season of Masterpiece Theatre in a single sitting. Like the Fellowes-scripted Gosford Park, this story of marital disharmony is just the starting point for a critique of patrician privilege. As a dig at England's nouveau aristocracy, Separate Lies is one bitter pill; as a drawing-room drama, however, it's strictly Peyton Place revisited.
