A suspenseful thriller based on true events that grabs the audience in all directions!

An intriguing story! I feel for the Family! Based on true events! A good film to watch! Great acting by all, especially by Ruth Wilson, playing her own Grandmother, Alice, the heroine of this Story!

Alec had nightmares all his life, starting when he came from the First War! I want to know what exactly happened there.. , because it was only when he rewrote the facts was he able to function, during the day, it seems! Did the Family ever learned the story of that time?

Also, various people from his Foreign Service said 'he saved many lives'! Yet, it was never elaborated on! So, it is left unclear! And the Family, probably, don't know either, since his records were refused to be released by the British Government when the Family made a request! One would think that since the WW 2 happened so long ago, the info can be safely released by now!

I was a fan of Ruth Wilson before she became a star. She is fantastic in this film. There will be questions unanswered, but I don't believe the real family knows all the answers. Her grand father was an amazing liar. The scene where Allison learns that the forgiveness she gave her husband has crumbled into dust will break your heart.

Quite intriguing at first, then it got a little slow, but in all worth watching. Interesting at the end to see all the real life people connected to this story.

Excellent. Viewed this on PBS Masterpiece Theater, 2 separate episodes

Fascinating story, made more so because it's based on true events. The British actors are wonderful (as always), especially Ruth Wilson, who is playing her own grandmother! The story still leaves a lot of dangling threads, but it is satisfying in its own way. Glad I saw it.
