| An August April!
I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent adaptation. A great collaboration between the BBC and Kindle and beautifully directed by Juliet May, who clearly empathised with the subject. The character portrayal was superb; a wonderfully natural relationship between the charmingly batty Marion and Elliot; and consummate performances from all 3 Aprils.

I was interested to see 'beefnlola's' comment about the dexterous and sinister April. In fact both younger April's were left handed, so Dakota was the odd one out. Perhaps she broke her left arm during a burglary at the age of 12! That aside there was little to criticise in what proved to be a remarkably un-sentimental 90 minutes of good viewing. Something the BBC could happily repeat so far as I'm concerned; I'll be in the queue to buy the DVD in January.
