Restless is Superb – Review

created on Dec-11-2012

Hayley Atwell as the young Eva in Restless

The first reviews are out for last week’s premier of Part One of Restless, which stars Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Rufus Sewell (The Pillars of the Earth) and the dynamic acting duo of Charlotte Rampling and Michael Gambon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“Having already scored with its two scripted ventures — Carlos and Appropriate Adult — Sundance Channel keeps its streak going with Restless, a superb two-part miniseries about British spies in the early 1940s before America’s entry into World War II.”

 

 

Those wacky maniacs at Fresh Hell invited me along for a strange discussion ranging from stand-up comedy, fan fiction, Judge Dredd, and the 1970’s underwater zombie nazi horror Shockwaves.

It’s all true!

Sundance Channel will screen Part 1 of its BBC co-produced two-part thriller Restless at 9 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 on the Sundance Channel (I assume that’s EDT).

Based on the novel by British novelist William Boyd and directed by Edward Hall, Restless follows the story of a daughter Ruth (Michelle Dockery) who discovers that her mother Sally (Charlotte Rampling) was recruited as a spy during World War II.
Hayley Atwell, Rufus Sewell
