Without Julia Ormond in the leading role I would have stopped the dvd about 30 minutes into the first of six episodes and picked up a good book. Being a devoted Ormond fan I watched the entire drama plus the extra segment. It was comforting to find that all the characters survived to the end of episode six and loose ends were sufficiently tied up. This Cinderella drama for the chubby middle aged offers an unbelievable plot, unrelenting tension, threat of violence, actual violence, and an enigmatic ending which (to me) belied the entire story. Set design and locations were beautiful; however, I'll never get those 341 minutes back.
