First up is the two part, extremely hilarious, DIRTY TRICKS. This 2000 production starring Martin Clune of Men Behaving Badly fame has him as a poor English teacher who winds up in a better circle with a couple. Unfortunately, she is unhappy in their sexless marriage so an affair begins. Then, the husband is killed in an actual boating accident. No murder at all. Just bad luck and our teacher marries his affair. Yeah, then he becomes infatuated with another woman and his wife slips in the living room and dies. Again, not his fault but he decides to blame it on her lover who she has gotten pregnant from.
That's when it all goes South.
DIRTY TRICKS is a twisted black comedy that will leave you shaking your head and laughing out loud.
There you have it for this week. Three new releases from Acorn Media with the promise of much more great British television to come in the future.
