Samuel K. (Solvanda)
Reviewed on 9/6/2018...
Seven episode series released by Thames Television in 1974. Chronicles the life of Winston Churchill's mother, Lady Jennie, played by American actress Lee Remick. This production won many awards. I think much of the purpose of this series was to give the background to Winston's character, why he became the creature he did, and kept getting kicked out of school. His parents were high strung, Type A political beasts! There is one particularly galling scene in here in which Winston's father behaves with abject cruelty towards his son.

The first 3 episodes were a bit boring for me, but it really picks up after. Jennie led quite the fascinating and adventurous life, which I don't think she had expected to. I was a bit sad to see some notes that Lee Remick's life was cut short by cancer in 1991, at the age of 55. She looks a lot like my own mother, and her life was cut short the same way.
