Cold Comfort Farm (1995) short review


Movies just don’t get any better than this.  This is a hilarious movie based on a hilarious book, about Flora Poste (played by Kate Beckinsale) who, when her parents die, goes to live with distant relatives in the country and proceeds to tidy up their lives.  Great 1930s costuming, especially nice tweedy day wear and some great evening gowns as well.  There’s really not a thing wrong with this movie.

    I need to find this, and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, for my perfect fun faux 1930 VOC (Victory over Corona) double bill.
