- Forsyte Saga: The Complete Series
Based on the classic novels by Nobel Prize-winning author John Galsworthy, The Forsyte Saga is a compelling drama of love, adultery, obsession, power, and money. The critically-acclaimed series spans three generations of the upwardly mobile Forsyte family at the turn of the 20th century. On the surface, the Forsytes are the ultimate powerful Victorian family--superior, arrogant, and confident--but underneath this imposing veneer lies a festering core of unhappy and brutal relationships.
The legacy begins with Soames Forsyte (Damian Lewis, Homeland, Wolf Hall), a rich and successful partner in the family law firm and staunch upholder of the old moral code. His fiery relationship with his beautiful wife, Irene (Gina McKee, Notting Hill), leads her to embark on a passionate affair that tears the Forsyte family apart in a bitter feud with devastating consequences.
A classic of English literature, The Forsyte Saga paints a fascinating picture of early twentieth century London life, charting the progress of a great dynasty from the height of the Victorian era through the turbulent transition into the modern age.
