Man in an Orange Shirt (2017)

2017 | UKPatrick Gale★★

Screened as part of the BBC's Gay Britannia season, Patrick Gale's disappointing but vaguely likeable Man in an Orange Shirt is a two-part romantic drama, hamstrung by bland performances, unconvincing dialogue, and an ill-fitting score.


"This captivating drama from the makers of Broadchurch and Apple Tree Yard explores forbidden wartime love vividly contrasted with a present-day romance nearly derailed by the consequences of the 1940s tale with which it is so intertwined. Written by best-selling author Patrick Gale, Man in an Orange Shirt features an exciting cast of outstanding young stars alongside Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave." Network
