Cold Comfort Farm is a hilarious spoof on British costume dramas that stars a pre-Pearl Harbor Kate Beckinsale as a strong-willed young woman named Miss Flora Poste, who finds herself orphaned and without means in the 1930s. Moving in with some half-savage relatives on a country farm, Flora is hardly daunted by their primitivism (as she might have been in a novel by Thomas Hardy) but instead takes charge and imposes hygiene, order and good manners on the dirty, superstitious lot. John Schlesinger directs this brisk, infectious adaptation of the 1932 novel by Stella... Gibbons. Beckinsale is wonderful and the rest of the savvy, inspired cast perfectly send up a host of literary clichés. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com [show more]

Flora Poste (Kate Beckinsale) is the recently orphaned London society girl who ignores the advice of her mentor Mrs Smiley (Joanna Lumley) and moves to the country to live with relatives on their farm. An aspiring novelist, Flora soon realises that there is plenty of material for her stories on the decrepit farm - and she decides that she will bring her sense of order to the chaotic and humorous characters that she meets.
