based on the novel by Ian McEwan ; produced by Bee Gilbert, Ene Vanaveski ; written and directed by Andrew Birkin
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
Four children, shocked by the death of their mother, hide her body in the basement to avoid being sent to an orphanage. While eldest daughter Julie takes on the maternal role, Jack shows little interest in either younger brother Tom, who is retreating into his own fantasy world, or younger sister Sue who spends most of her time in the basement writing her diary with her dead mother. Absorbed in himself and his growing attraction to Julie, Jack excludes himself from the family, only to be jolted back to reality by the arrival of Julie's boyfriend Derek. While the children fear they may now be discovered, even more startling is what Julie and Jack are discovering about themselves.
