Waterland

Based on Graham Swift's best-selling novel, the story tells of a childless British couple who come to America in an effort to make a fresh start. Featured players include Jeremy Irons as a high school history teacher who manages to break through his students' wall of indifference by relating his and his family's painful personal his- tory in Europe during World War II. Of the story directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal who was most recently attached to the Emmy-nominated Showtime feature "Paris Trout": "A sort of valedictory for history, really, showing that it's not irrelevant what has happened in our lives and in the world."
