He Knew He Was Right

He Knew He Was Right

Director: Tom Vaughan Cast: Bill Nighy, Laura Fraser, Oliver Dimsdale



When Louis and Emily Trevalyan exchanged wedding vows on a day that seemed to mark the beginning of a blissful union, little could they foresee the trials that would face them in their first year of marriage. As Anthony Trollepe slowly peels away the layers of Victorian propriety, a variety of colorful characters are revealed, including a colonel of questionable morals who makes unwholesome advances to the newlywed bride. As the fans that fuel Louis' jealousy soon give way to a raging inferno, the dejected groom rejects his wife and newborn son leading to a tragic bid to destroy everything in the world that he loves.

He Knew He Was Right 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Unfortunately, I don't believe the story itself is quite up to the level of many other of Trollope's works. I enjoyed the device of the characters occasionally sharing their thoughts with the audience, although it may have been done a little too much. The movie is certainly worth watching, but "The Way We Live Now" and even the much older "Barchester Towers" are much better. If only Andrew Davies would do a screenplay for "Dr. Thorne."
