I'm a sucker for many movies starring "dames"

All Passion Spent is a three part series from the BBC about a politicians widow who decides to go live a secluded life in the country after her husband's death. Her children, for the most part, can't stand the idea - mostly because they think society will look ill on them.

Its a lovely slow story full of new and old friendships. It takes an excellent look at relationships between adult children and their elderly parents. It was a thoroughly sweet and unexpected pleasure to watch.
