Masterpiece Classic: Small Island
When Hortense (Naomie Harris) leaves her native island of Jamaica and lands in 1948 London, she dreams of making a better life for herself and expanding her social opportunities. Instead, she's confronted with racism and life's harsh realities. One of the harshest is her marriage of convenience to a man (David Oyelowo) she doesn't love. John Alexander directs this televised adaptation of Andrea Levy's award-winning novel.
