Dickens was the master of Victorian social satire, ruthlessly exposing the cruelty and absurdity that supported the strictly hierarchical class-structure of the day. This superb production of Our Mutual Friend does full justice to his darkest, most complex novel, fleshing out the satirical bones of the plot with performances that eschew caricature in favour of psychological depth. Anna Friel's Bella is wonderfully complex, her innate goodness struggling with her love of money and desire for advancement. Paul McGann, as the lawyer Wrayburn, is also superb, wrestling with the implications of his feelings for Lizzie. And of course, this being Dickens and the BBC, there's a terrific supporting cast, including Timothy Spall as the melancholy articulator of skeletons, Mr Venus. As the fortunes of the characters rise and fall, the river Thames flows eternally.
Daniel Feeld is a successful screenwriter whose world is coming to pieces. He is suffering agonizing pain in his nether regions on two counts: (1) a physical illness in his bowels that his doctors repeatedly misdiagnose, and (2) an insufferable director who, in an obsessional effort to place the actress who is also his mistress at the centre of every shot, is bent on wrecking Feeld's latest drama, called Karaoke. Through a haze of pain dulled first by alcohol and then by morphine, Daniel begins to notice people all around him seem to be repeating scraps of dialogue from his play. Is his script a psychic forecast of reality, or has he himself only been lip-synching to some prewritten karaoke script? When he discovers he has accidentally named his repulsive little villain after an actual (and dangerous) person, he must reconsider the relationship between his real and fictional worlds.
