Overview

Going Postal

As a three-hour miniseries (adapted from Terry Pratchetts novel of the same name) that originally aired on Britain's Sky One television, Going Postal (2010) unfolds in the fictional land of Ankh-Morpork. Standing center stage is Moist von Lipwig (Richard Coyle), a master con artist who spends his days devising elaborate scams to fleece locals. The law finally catches up with Moist in the form of Lord Vetinari (Charles Dance), who offers the criminal an odd ultimatum: he can either take over the derelict post office, or die a long and painful death. Moist chooses the former, and is soon put in charge of thousands upon thousands of undelivered letters and packages. He must also contend with a nutty staff and the doings of Reacher Gilt (David Suchet), a crooked businessman hell-bent on destroying his competitors. Also present is Adora Dearheart (Claire Foy), an ice water-veined woman for whom Moist falls.

"Going Postal" is a fantasy film that is based on the novel of the same name and written by Terry Pratchett. The movie centers around a shrewd but conniving conman named Moist Lipwig who does not realize how his actions affect other people until life circumstances force him to change. Lipwig's conscience grows even more strongly when he meets and falls in love with Adora Belle Dearheart. Lipwig meets Adora Dearheart after he is given a mandatory assignment to work at the post office. Terry Pratchett plays a role in the film and the following actors/actresses are also featured in "Going Postal": Richard Coyle, David Suchet, Charles Dance,Claire Foy, Nicholas Farrell, Marnix, Broeke,Jimmy Yuill,Steve Pemberton, Andrew Sachs, Tamsin Greig, Ingrid Berdal, Adrian Schiller, Ian Bonar, Madhav Sharma, and Timothy West.The only caveat that was pointed out to me had to do with character personalities featured in the film compared to what was in the book. For instance,my husband watched the film with me out of curiosity and because he read the "Going Postal" book. He explained to me that the characters of Adora and Lipwig were actually portrayed much more self-confidently in the book than the film. Aside from that caveat, "Going Postal" is a quirky and adventurous film.

Was a great adaptation of Terry Pratchett's book in Discworld. This was the first film adaptation that I felt actually put us in Anhkmorpork.
