Act of Will

Act of Will


Three beautiful women – grandmother, mother and daughter – struggle bravely through five eventful decades of hidden love, high drama and sudden death in this, Barbara Taylor Bradford’s most stirring tale, based closely on her own remarkable true-life story.

In Part I, Victoria Tennant (star of War & Rememberance and Voice of the Heart) shines as Audra, iron-willed matriarch who devotes herself completely to her daughter Christina (Elizabeth Hurley), who is determined that she live the life Audra was denied cruelly by the death of her young mother and her own hasty marriage to a lowly workman.

In Part II, Christina rises quickly to success amongst London’s glittering elite, yet she happily risks everything in a torrid, tempestuous affair with a married member of Parliament, portrayed brilliantly by Peter Coyote, star of Outrageous Fortune.
