Having You

Review Itas early 20th-century England and Angelica Deverell (Romola Garai, Emma, Atonement, I Capture the Castle), the headstrong daughter of a grocer, fantasizes about living in Paradise House, the most sumptuous mansion in her otherwise dreary town, and sets out to achieve her dream life. Angel has always kept a journal of her musings, and out of her wildly romantic visions, she concocts an over-the-top melodramatic novel. She interests a London publisher (Sam Neill, The Tudors, Jurassic Park) in her book, and he manages to turn it into a bestseller a making young Angel the talk of London.
Not Since You

Review Based on the sensational novel by Michel Faber

"Thrilling" -Daily Express (U.K.) "A deep, dark treat" -The Times (U.K.)

"Compelling, beautifully shot, and vividly acted" -The Daily Telegraph (U.K.)
"The outstanding drama of the year" -The Times (U.K.)

As seen on Encore

Enter a Victorian England you’ve never seen: gritty, dark, and unsettling. Based on Michel Faber’s international bestseller, this four-part BBC series follows the fortunes of Sugar (Romola Garai, Atonement, Emma), a notorious prostitute who longs for a better life. Sexually adept, ambitious, and clever, she casts a spell on William Rackham (Chris O’Dowd, Bridesmaids, The IT Crowd), feckless heir to a perfume business and husband to a wife slipping slowly into insanity. As their lives intertwine, events are set in motion that will change them forever.

This provocative psychological thriller boasts a stellar cast and a boldly original look and feel, exposing 1870s London as a place where violence and madness lurked everywhere. Garai is “electric” (The Telegraph Magazine, U.K.), O’Dowd “a revelation” (The Daily Telegraph, U.K.), and Amanda Hale “brilliant” (The Times, U.K.) as Rackham’s wife, Agnes. With Gillian Anderson (Bleak House, The X-Files) as monstrous madam Mrs. Castaway and Richard E. Grant (Gosford Park) as creepy Dr. Curlew, “this striking Gothic melodrama…[is] lurid in the best sense” (The Scotsman, U.K.).
