The Politician's Wife.

He's had a mistress. She's had enough! When conservative British politician Duncan Matlock (Trevor Eve, Waking the Dead) - Conservative Party golden boy and dedicated family man - gets caught in an affair with a former call-girl (Minnie Driver, Good Will Hunting), his devoted wife, Flora (Juliet Stevenson, Bend It Like Beckham) initially decides to stand by him. Her family influence and money made his career, after all. Secretly, she is enraged and, as tapes of Duncan's erotic telephone calls come to light, she embarks on an ingenious plot to destroy him and regain her dignity and pride. This reissue of the 1995 miniseries is a racy, wickedly crafted masterpiece. All three episodes.

Magnificent, restrained performance by Juliet Stevenson as the woman whose well-being is completely subsumed by both her husband and her father to the political party the support. I have had this DVD for about a decade and watch it a couple of times a year, with great pleasure. Look out for a recent DVD called The Politician's Husband, by the same writer, for another view of a political marriage.

Fiendishly clever, smart political drama
A quality production with the usual high standard of performances we associate with the BBC, A Politician's Wife is a sophisticated 3-part series made for Channel Four. Some explicit sequences and coarse language make this movie unsuitable for family viewing. A star cast, led by Juliet Stephenson at her guileful and beguiling best, follow the fall-out from a Cabinet scandal and raises questions about the division of loyalties in public life which provide Stephenson with the elements she needs to plot a Machiavellian revenge.
