The Line Of Beauty

The Line Of Beauty

The new drama The Line Of Beauty is adapted by award-winning writer Andrew Davies from Alan Hollinghurst's 2004 Man Booker Prize-winning novel. This is a story about love, class, sex and money that gets deep under the skin of the Thatcherite Eighties.

Framed by the two General Elections which returned Mrs Thatcher to power, The Line Of Beauty unfurls through four extraordinary years of change and tragedy. This outsider's journey into the heart of the beautiful and seductive world of the social elite bristles with emotion, drama and social commentary.

Full of style and wit, it is a richly textured coming-of-age story set in London in a ruthless decade. The Line Of Beauty stars a mix of new, young talent and established names. Dan Stevens, Alex Wyndham and Hayley Atwell appear alongside Tim McInnerny, Don Gilet, Kenneth Cranham, Alice Krige, Kika Markham and Chris Fairbank.

The Line Of Beauty is set between the 1983 and 1987 Thatcherite electoral victories. It charts the relationship between Nick Guest, a gay, middle-class boy with a passion for Henry James, and the Feddens, a rich Tory family from Kensington.
