Separate Tables

BBBB

(out of 5)


Enormously enjoyable ensemble drama that takes place at a sleepy seaside resort run by . The many guests of the inn interact for two hours, sometimes successfully, sometimes not as the drama proceeds.  is having an affair with Hiller, but is thrown into confusion when ex-wife  (in one of her last notable roles) shows up asking for another chance.  (in an excellent performance) is a painfully shy old maid travelling with her mother.  plays a lonely ex-colonel with a spotted past who strikes up a bond with Kerr, much to the chagrin of her conservative mother (). Low key and lovely, and very entertaining.
