Part 2, « Inheritance » , opens with my new favorite matter of fact description of place. Nathaniel has been rescued by his mother’s wartime colleague to her childhood home and it’s 1959. Otherwise, the boy is re-writing Dickens. On each side of 1945. The boy came of age with thieves, and the mother’s war story can’t exactly be told because it might be too true. Artful play with time, except too many cuts at the end feel they ordered a movie.
