Review of I Capture the Castle

Add header image

Choose file... or enter url:
this movie was adapted from a book by dodie smith that i read about 1965. the movie has romola garai as cassandra mortmain--the family mortmain are challenged to maintain a proper household that includes father--james who writes, but has a tough time finding an isolated work place and often gets writers block. the other family members are rose byrne as rose and tara fitzgerald as topaz. the story which takes place in a crumbling castle in suffolk is filtered through the eyes of cassandra the younger of the two daughters. her older sister rose is hoping to soon find a proper man and her chance arrives with simon and neil cotton played by henry thomas and marc blucas. the cottons have plans to live in the castle. the remaining member of the mortmain family is topaz who is james' second wife-- i honestly don't remember a great number of details-- the cast is good and the family is poor-- i know a lot of interesting things occur.--the filmmakers certainly wouldn't bother with a book that age if it didn't seem a good story--rose byrne is up and coming now, as are romola garai and tara fitzgerald. BTW dodie smith also wrote 101 dalmations--if you watch this and enjoy it--let us all know -I intend to try and secure a copy on dvd-
