21 Days (Twenty-One Days Together)


(out of 5)

 and  were reunited for the second time in this touching little British drama (the first time was Fire Over England). When Leigh’s husband finds out that she and Olivier have been having an affair, he threatens her with blackmail until Olivier kills him. Evidence leads the authorities to another man, giving Olivier the chance to either let a stranger die for his crime or turn himself in. From the time of the sentencing to the time of the innocent man’s execution, the couple have three weeks of each other’s company before they can decide whether or not to come clean about the deed. The both of them (who were married the year this was released) did far more memorable work in their careers, but nostalgia will still without a doubt draw audiences to this film.
