Man in an Orange Shirt (Blu-ray)

  • Love seldom runs smoothly, even when it’s legal. What, then, are the chances of happiness for Michael and Thomas—two Army officers who fall in love during World War II? As civilians at last, they share an illicit, idyllic week together after the war, then live apart to avoid arrest. Lonely and fearful, Michael spreads the couple’s secret tragedy by marrying his fiancée, Flora, who learns the truth too late. Sixty years later, Flora—now a widow— struggles to come to terms with her lonely marriage and the vastly different life of her openly gay grandson. You’ll be deeply moved by this heart-rending, 2-episode drama and its brilliant cast—Vanessa Redgrave, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, James McArdle, Joanna Vanderham and Frances de la Tour. 2 hours on 1 Disc.
