Movie Info

In a novel and intriguing approach to storytelling, director David Hare has created an engaging mystery and human drama that ostensibly focuses on an innocent dinner party but is really about something else. Jean Travers (Vanessa Redgrave) is an old-maid schoolmarm who has lived in Wetherby, a small town in northeastern Yorkshire, all of her life. She is still haunted by memories of a passionate love affair with a young man who was later murdered while on military duty in Malaysia nearly 35

Wetherby has a pedigree which substantially outstrips its small and undercooked story.

A gripping psychodrama that touches on themes of loss, middle age blues, and the dangers of repressing primal emotions such as love, violence, and desire.

Audience Reviews for Wetherby

Exceptional cast in dark gloomy drama that moves at a glacial pace. The actors can't be faulted but it's a bit of a slog.

An interesting build up and retracing of the steps leading up to the tragedy. This film however suffers from dull hanging in periods of tepid dialogue and useless plot development. Partially saved by solid acting, it nonetheless is not particularly memorable.
