Movie Info

Originally aired in the United States on PBS, playwright Julian Mitchell's BAFTA-award-winning television mini-series tells the remarkable life story of Jennie Churchill (Lee Remick), the American woman who married Lord Randolph Churchill (Ronald Pickup) and went on to become the mother of revered British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Warren Clarke). Jennie Churchill was just 19 when she first met Lord Randolph Churchill, and the couple was married shortly thereafter. Later, after giving birth to Winston, Jennie experienced hardship and exile before watching her husband die and remarrying twice to suitors who were the same age or younger as her son. Christopher Cazenove, Siân Phillips, and Jeremy Brett co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Jennie: Lady Randolph Churchill

There are some good supporting performances here but the whole enterprise rests on Lee Remick's portrayal of the title character and she delivers in spades. Her Jenny is by turns funny, haughty, wise, flighty, maternal, selfish, giving and always beautiful. She takes us along from her youth to old age and by the end you feel you know this woman and are glad of it. The set and costume designs are expertly done and lend a real sense of the period. For history buffs a worthwhile viewing experience with the bonus of not only a top flight actress but one that provides movie star glamour to boot.
