“There’s a real potency to how [Eva] Husson contrasts the sexual frankness of the young lovers’ meetings with the miserable ritual of their outside lives – the difference between white sheets and the deep reds and fussy florals of an Edwardian parlor room. —Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
“One of the sexiest period dramas in some time”
—The Hollywood Reporter
On a warm spring day in 1924, housemaid and foundling Jane Fairchild (Odessa Young) finds herself alone on Mother’s Day. Her employers, Mr. and Mrs. Niven (Colin Firth and Olivia Colman), are out and she has the rare chance to spend quality time with her secret lover. Paul (Josh O’Connor) is the boy from the manor house nearby, Jane’s long-term love despite the fact that he’s engaged to be married to another woman, a childhood friend, and daughter of his parents’ friends. But events that neither can foresee will change the course of Jane’s life forever.
