Brimstone and Treacle

1982

Richard Loncraine
Director

Masterpiece Theater style presentation masks a wonderfully subversive little morality tale from Dennis Potter as a devious freeloader (or worse) wiggles his way into the affections of a family dealing with their handicapped daughter. Sting is suitably impish as the catalyst.
