Film #30 of 2013: A Passionate Woman (2010)
Set in Leeds in the Fifties Cold War period, Billie Piper stars as Betty, a young wife and mother who reluctantly falls passionately and hopelessly in love with her charismatic Polish neighbour, Alex Crazenovski, played by Theo James. But little does Betty know that some 30 years later, in Eighties Thatcherite Britain, her affair will implode on her beloved son Mark’s wedding day.
Great romantic film with Theo James and Billie Piper. Did I mention Theo James? Too bad he wasn’t in the second half, but the second half was interesting too as it showed that even though you might be in a passionate relationship with someone, it may not stand the test of time.
