“War And Peace” is one of those books everyone probably should read, but the sheer size of the thing is intimidating. So The Weinstein Company and BBC Cymru Wales Drama are hoping to make the story more manageable size with an upcoming six-part miniseries, and the first trailer has arrived.
Paul Dano, Lily James, James Norton, Gillian Anderson, Jim Broadbent, Stephen Rea and Rebecca Front star in the saga about the tumultuous rise of Pierre Bezukhov and his romance with Natasha Rostova. Basically, there will be some great costume and set design, and equally ornate emotions to go with it. Don’t think I’m being glib, because it’s right up my alley.
Tom Harper (“Peaky Blinders,” “Women In Black: Angel Of Death“) directed “War And Peace,” which will air on A&E and the History Channel in the U.S. later this year. Watch below.
