So Bloody British "Separate Lies"

"Separate Lies" should keep any Anglophile happy. Directed by Julian Fellowes, who also wrote "Gosford Park," the movie intertwines the demise of a marriage and the coverup of a killing. The film reminded me of an episode of PBS's "Mystery" series. Not a great movie, but pretty entertaining. Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson lifted the script above a melodrama, and Rupert Everett's locked-jawed's insouciance gave me a few laughs. As well, there are enough references to cricket, a "solicitor," a country home, and a flat to transport you to London for a wee bit of time.
