Overview

Director Hugh Hudson, who made his directorial debut with the award-winning Chariots Of Fire, returns to the theme of British life in the 1920s in the bittersweet family drama My Life So Far. Gamma Macintosh Rosemary Harris is the matriarch of a family that inhabits Harewood House, a castle in the Scottish Highlands. Besides Gamma, the adult heads of the household are her daughter, Moira Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Moira's husband Edward Pettigrew Colin Firth, a mildly eccentric inventor who tinkers with experimental automobiles and airplanes. Moira and Edward have two children, son Fraser Robbie Norman and daughter Elspeth Kelly Macdonald. One day Moira's brother Morris Malcolm McDowell stops by with his fiancée, a French woman named Heloise Irene Jacob, whose beauty and sophistication turns Edward's head and stirs new emotions in young Fraser. Filmed in 1997, My Life So Far remained in the editing room until 1999, when it was shown in a special benefit screening at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival.

    A REAL GEM !

    This exquisite movie is based on the autobiography of Sir Denis Forman (''Son of Adam''.) It has a superb cast, especically the title role of 10-year ''Fraser'' played by Robbie Norman. He is so adorable! Colin Firth, as Fraser's father Edward Pettigrew, is in his top form. Firth is such an amazing actor - he can envoy such intensity of emotion with his eyes. As in his protrayals of ''Mr. Darcy'' in ''Pride & Prejudice,'' and in his much earlier film, ''A Month in the Country,'' his restraint and surpassed emotions come across with such impact. It seems that the less he has to say, the better. (However, one could listen to his deep, posh voice all day long!)There is a slight error in the ALL MOVIE REVIEW above as supplied by Barnes & Noble. The Pettigrew family consisted of 10 children, not two. Fraser and Elspeth were the focus.

    A Jewel of a Film!

    I loved this film. It was a lovely surprise as only the British can do. A period piece and based on a true story, the casting, acting, and directing are superb. Your heart goes out to the young Fraiser. Lastly, if you love music from Scotland, like me, you will adore this film.
