Description

In an apparently idyllic 17th century Wiltshire, an ambitious draughtsman is commissioned by the wife of an aristocrat to produce twelve drawings of her husband’s estate and negotiates terms to include sexual favours from his employer. But when a corpse is dragged from the moat, the draughtsman’s drawings may reveal more than he realised.

Extravagant costumes, a twisting plot, elegantly barbed dialogue and a mesmerising score by Michael Nyman make the film a treat for ear, eye and mind.
