  • Tom Crick (Jeremy Irons) is a withered history teacher whose students don't find his lessons on the French Revolution worthwhile. So instead, Tom spends class time telling his students about some 30-year-old family skeletons he's trying, hopelessly, to forget. Though he shares them with his students, Tom's problems are wholly intimate: his wife, Mary, haunted by painful memories, is on the brink of insanity. But as Tom continues to talk, he goes further and further back in time, narrating a personal and social history filled with jealously, madness and death.

    "...A fearlessly eccentric film of haunting depth....Irons's remarkable gravity dispels any sense of the frivolous..."
    New York Times
