Year of Wonders

From Singles 2009

Fascinating historical drama about the plague and a little village that decides under the direction of their pastor to isolate themselves so as to contain the infection rather than allowing it to spread to neighboring communities. Well written and based on the real village of Eyam in Derbyshire, England. (You can visit the Plague Town! It is now on my list of things to do.)

Then, as the rate of new infection comes to an end almost 12 months later, the story takes a turn into a bodice tearing, lustful romp. A bit odd, but, OK.

No quote. Rushing through here. Just trying to catch up.
