Information and Film Reviews for A Handful of Dust the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

A dry, stately adaptation of the bitter Evelyn Waugh novel about a stuffy young aristocrat's wife's careless infidelity and how it sends her innocent husband to a tragic downfall. A well-meaning version that captures Waugh's cynical satire almost in spite of itself. Set in post-WWI England.
