And a Nightingale Sang C.P. Taylor

 

 

A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square — Tori Amos.

 

I first saw this around 1990 when it came on PBS American Playhouse - I think. I taped it and since then I have watched it probably 50 times. Phyllis Logan is excellent and if this had been a theatrical film I believe she would have been nominated for an Academy Award. Her performance is that good. She is so good as Helen, the crippled older daughter of a slightly dysfunctional family. She falls in love with a married soldier but believes it will work out, yet we know she will have her heart broken. I just felt so sorry for Helen when I first saw this, I remember thinking that this guy was idiot to stay with his wife and child instead of Helen. The rest of the cast is good as well and their characters are all interesting without taking away from the main storyline. I think this is out on DVD now. Rent it and you won't be disappointed. It is a wonderful film. There are many scenes that show the range of emotions that Helen feels in her first love affair and Phyllis Logan is great in all of them. This is one of the best TV movies I have ever seen, if not the best.
