'Cold Comfort Farm' - Movie Review

This is a 1995 British TV movie based on Stella Gibbons' 1932 book of the same name, a parody of romanticized farm life novels of the time. Kate Beckinsale plays Flora Poste, looking for a place to live after the death of her parents. Rather than live with friends or family in London, she chooses relatives on a clearly dysfunctional and broken down farm in the country. Despite problems, she's determined to persevere - and meddle in everyone's lives to make them better. All the eccentric relatives are painted in broad strokes, and her solutions to their lives even more so. Very silly, but somewhat amusing.
