This film is roughly what the title suggests—a captivatingly filmed, deeply romantic drama of immense intelligence and distinguished by a superb cast.
The rhythm of Lee’s writing, the tempo of the acting, the swell of Michael Yezerski’s Hollywood-style score, the camera angles, the moody lighting, the harmonious editing are just right. There is not an extraneous shot in Barrett’s direction, or one that is missing.
A period melodrama that delivers nonstop intrigue and cliffhangers along with pointed social critique. There are a dizzying number of interwoven plot strands that involve romances complicated by class, religion, sexual orientation, tragic pregnancies, mysterious deaths (and mysterious reappearances of people thought dead), anti-Semitism, and homophobia.
If you appreciate thought-provoking, socially conscious period dramas with some darker themes, memorable characters, and fantastic storytelling, then A PLACE to CALL HOME makes for a wonderful choice.
