This poignant adaptation of Andrea Levy's award-winning novel explores the lives of two couples, one Jamaican and the other English, whose worlds intertwine in post-World War II Britain, at a turning point in the long relationship between the two countries. It is a story of tender emotion and sparkling wit, of crossings taken and passages lost, of shattering compassion and of reckless optimism in the face of insurmountable barriers.

I read Andrea Levy's book some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I just watched the first episode of the Masterpiece adaptation, and cannot wait to see the rest of it. In fact, I came to this site to purchase a copy of the movie. I will be recommending both the book and the movie to family and friends. Though fiction, it's a completely untapped historical perspective on WWII. Fascinating.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Small Island DVD:

I wasn't sure if I would like this when I bought it, but after watching it, I'm glad I did buy it. It was a thought-provoking glimpse into social history wrapped up in good story lines and presentation. This made it a compelling watch even though it moved at a leisurely pace.
