Product Overview

The Baltics, 1939. British professor Guy Pringle (Kenneth Branagh) arrives in Romania with his new bride, Harriet (Emma Thompson) and becomes enmeshed in the politics of anti-fascism. Despite Harriet's serious misgivings, Guy's social circle soon includes members of the British Secret Service who want to involve him in dangerous missions, and a downtrodden prince who zeroes in on Guy's generous nature and winds up living with the Pringles. Thus the stage is set for this mesmerizing story of marriage tested by accidental betrayal, callous insensitivity, and a world in upheaval. Based upon the autobiographical novels of best-selling author Olivia Manning, and set in places as far-flung as Bucharest, Athens and Cairo, Fortunes of War is majestic in both its scope and its vision.

Editors Note
Note Set in Romania during a time of great social turmoil, this gritty political drama stars Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson as a newlywed couple entering the country for the first time. Branagh plays Guy, a hopeless optimist who is easily swayed in his views. When he starts hanging out with British members of the Secret Service, he becomes embroiled in some death-defying schemes that irretrievably alter his life. His wife, Harriett (Thompson) is none too pleased at these events, and their marriage hits the rocks as the daredevil tendencies of Guy upset the equilibrium in their relationship. Based on a true story, FORTUNES OF WAR is a fascinating glimpse into lives torn apart by the changing social fortunes of a country in turmoil.
