Cold Comfort Farm

This zany, quirky, satirical “talkie” features a very young Kate Beckinsale as Flora Poste, initially known as “Robert Poste's child”. In need of a place to spend some time after the death of her father, Miss Poste travels to the bucolic home of family members on Cold Comfort Farm. Here her work begins. She sets out precisely to make each and every peculiar character contented with themselves, whether they like it or not. Silly at times with humorous lines abounding, the movie delights with a pleasurable conclusion.

Based on the book by the same name by Stella Gibbons.
