Episode 2

Virginia Woolf's landmark modernist novel based on her own early experiences and published 1927 is dramatised by Linda Marshall Griffiths.

Intensely personal and profoundly universal; a moving portrait of family life that captures the transience of human experience.

The Ramsays holiday with their eight children and assorted guests in their summer house in the Hebrides. Mrs Ramsay believes that everyone should marry; but while young painter Lily Briscoe has other ideas, down on the beach Minta is on the brink of a moment that will change her whole life.

Directed by Nadia Molinari.
