Hi everyone,

A Village Affair is being released on DVD in region 1 format on May 26, 2009. Several USA bookstores, such as Borders and Barnes and Noble are already accepting pre-orders. This will undoubtedly be available on Amazon.com as well. This is definitely on my wish list.

Thanks for the information, Donna Rae. This is a very touching film -- low-key, but as relevant now as it was back in 1992. I really recommend it.

Our local library got it in a couple of months ago and I borrowed it. The excellent cast certainly carried the story along.

Hi Myfanwy,

Welcome back to the forum. I thought Village Affair was well done. It is really sad that the young wife, Alice, lets everyone control her life, including her husband, mother-in-law, and her lover. She gets herself together in the end but leaves a lot of destruction behind.
So awful for the husband, Nat's part, even though his character isn't without fault in the matter. I recall several movies where Nat has to do a crying scene. A Piece of Cake, The Black Candle, and A Suitable Vengeance (Inspector Lynley). I think he did the most convincing job on the Lynley episode.

Hi Donna Rae

That was a very good episode of IL. I haven't seen Piece of Cake or the Black Candle. I thought he did a pretty good job in A Village Affair as well. I thought the scene where he gets very aggressive with his wife after he discovers the affair was also very well done - a difficult one to watch.

SPOILER HERE RE: FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD[/b] - However, the scene in Far from the Madding Crowd where Gabriel gets teary over Bathsheba when they are discussing getting married near the end of the story was quite powerful. Not overdone at all, which I think added to its intensity. Probably one of my favourite NP scenes.
