In The Spoils of Poynton, released on DVD on 2nd April 2012 from Acorn Media, this powerful adaptation of the Henry James classic, valued possessions become playing pieces in a terrible battle of wills that can only end badly for all concerned; and one woman's decision to play by the rules may risk losing the game altogether.

Adele Gereth has taken the young, attractive, sensitive and tasteful Fleda Vetch under her wing. Adele is intensely houseproud, particularly of the possessions she has gathered over the years, objects of beauty, paintings and furnishing all of which reside in Poynton, the family home.

Adele's son, Owen, is dangerously close to marrying Mona Brigstock, a woman lacking entirely in class or any respectable sensibility. In young Fleda, Adele sees a potentially more suitable future mistress of the house and inheritor of her life's work.

Mona however, while lacking in character, is far from lacking in backbone. Fleda soon finds herself buffeted by every wind that blows in Poynton and subject to almost every kind of attention both good and bad. What the future holds is in the lap of the Gods - and they will play perilous games with The Spoils of Poynton.

Starring Pauline Jameson, Gemma Jones, Ian Ogilvy, Diane Fletcher.
