The Astonished Heart DVD
Adapted by Noel Coward from his own play; written with superb British precision, The Astonished Heart tells a tale of an adulterous love triangle. Coward creates an intriguing, yet compassionate and sympathetic tale of marriage and infidelity fuelled by sexual obsession and human weakness. Doctor Christian Faber (Noel Coward) has been happily married to his wife, Barbara (Celia Johnson) for 12 years. Into their lives comes Leonora (Margaret Leighton), who, when forced together during a period of Barbara's absence, embarks on an affair with Christian.
