Episode Synopsis: World War II clouds life for a well-to-do British family in “The Cazalets,” a four-part adaptation of Elizabeth Jane Howard's novels. It opens in 1937 as the Cazalets leave London and the timber business run by eldest son Hugh (Hugh Bonneville) for their summer holiday at their Sussex estate. However, second son Edward (Stephen Dillane) would rather be with mistresses than with his wife (Lesley Manville); and youngest son Rupert (Paul Rhys), an artist, refuses to join the company.
