|Woman's Hour Drama on Radio 4
I wasn't going to bother with this as I saw the film a good while back and my memories of it are that is was a bleak,dreary affair...however I thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did as I'm really enjoying it .....much more can be conveyed in a radio adaptation as long lingering,soulful looks don't work quite the same on that medium
The narration is beautifully done.
Why does Ethan Frome walk with a limp?
And what is the tragedy that befell him over twenty years earlier?
A visitor to the town attempts to find out.
