A Dance To The Music Of Time: The Twenties Trailer

Nicholas Jenkins regales his married lover, Jean, with tales of his school days in the early 1920s, including his enduring friendships with Jean's suave older brother Peter Templer, the sad and fragile Charles Stringham, and the oft-mocked buffoon Kenneth Widmerpool. As Nicholas's affair with Jean comes to an end, he is introduced to the mysterious clairvoyant Mrs. Erdleigh by his disreputable Uncle Giles. She predicts Nicholas will soon meet his true love.
