Angels and Insects

Rating = A

Saw it several years ago as a movie; saw the video again last night on PBS.

A naturalist is given patronage to live on a large estate in 19th century England, where we come to see the parallels between the community of the estate and the insect communities studied by the naturalist and another member of the household staff (the latter played by Kristin Scott Thomas).

The movie is from the novella Morpho Eugenia by A.S. Byatt, which is excellent reading and which is published with another novella under the combined title of Angels and Insects.
