Summary
The new hauntingly powerful BBC adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's gothic romance novel JAMAICA INN starring Jessica Brown Findlay and Matthew McNulty. From the BAFTA winning director, Phillipa Lowthorpe (Call The Midwife) and written by Golden Globe nominated Emma Frost (The White Queen, Shameless) and by the Emmy and BAFTA winning producer David M Thompson, comes this exhilarating dramatic new adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's iconic book, JAMAICA INN. Set in 1820 against the forbidding backdrop of windswept Cornish moors, the story follows the journey of young and spirited Mary (Brown Findlay) who is forced to live with her Aunt Patience (Joanne Whalley) after the death of her mother. Mary arrives at the isolated Jamaica Inn to discover her Aunt is a shell of the carefree woman she remembers from her childhood, and instead finds a drudge who is firmly under the spell of her domineering husband Joss (Sean Harris). The Inn has no guests - the rooms are locked and kept for storage - but it soon becomes clear that it s a cover, as Joss is the leader of a smuggling ring, and Jamaica Inn the hub of his free trade. As Mary gets drawn into the dangerous world of smuggling, she finds herself attracted to Jem Merlyn (McNulty), Joss's roughly handsome younger brother. But he stands for everything that Mary despises and worse, she fears that he's involved in Joss's gang. Mary's morals and loyalties become deeply conflicted. Who can she trust? Can she even trust herself? Seeking guidance, Mary visits the parish vicar, Francis Davey (Ben Daniels), and his sister Hannah (Shirley Henderson). But can they help her to navigate this dangerous new world and do the right thing, or will she lose herself in everybody else's criminality? When Mary finds herself in peril for her own life, she is tested to the core and she's forced to find out what she's really made of
