Starring Donald Pleasence (HALLOWEEN) as Rev. Septimus Harding and Nigel Hawthorne (LITTLE WOMEN) as Archdeacon Grantly, THE BARCHESTER CHRONICLES is the tale of behind-the-scenes troubles in an English church. Political ructions and personal feuds boil to the surface as the tension mounts, making this a highly-charged thriller from famed writer Anthony Trollope.
Description by Warner Home Video:
The cozy community of Barchester is rocked from its complacency when a crusade against the Church of England's practice of self-enrichment misfires. Overnight, Septimus Harding (Donald Pleasence) becomes the pawn in a political battle begun by his younger daughter's beau, John Bold, and kept kindled by his older daughter's husband, Archdeacon Grantly (Nigel Hawthorne).
