Hey ‘Downton Abbey’ lovers! ‘Birdsong’, a cool-looking film starring Clemence Poesy and Eddie Redmayne, is coming this spring (April) to Masterpiece Classic! I’m totally psyched!

The plot of ‘Birdsong’ goes a little something like this, according to Amazon:
“Set before and during the great war, Birdsong captures the drama of that era on both a national and a personal scale. It is the story of Stephen, a young Englishman, who arrives in Amiens in 1910. His life goes through a series of traumatic experiences, from the clandestine love affair that tears apart the family with whom he lives, to the unprecedented experiences of the war itself.”
And check out the book, written by Sebastian Faulks:

I showed this to Andrew and he said, “Oh that looks kinda terrible.” WHAT??? Just for that, I’m going to make him watch it with me AND rub my feet. (“Wrong on both counts.” – Andrew)


  1. OH wow this looks wonderful! Thanks for the heads up, I can't wait to check it out! I wonder if I can put a pre-hold on it at the library...I'm still number 47 for the second season of Downton Abbey...

  2. I'm super excited!! And if you're into this sort of thing, did you see my 'North & South' post?

    THAT one is amazing, I looooooooved that show!
