It is a far, far better thing that Chris Sarandon's Sydney Carton does in this sweeping rendition of Charles Dickens' timeless tale. As the lives of several people are forever changed by the turmoil of the French Revolution, a young woman is torn between two suitors. The stellar cast includes Alice Krige, Peter Cushing, Barry Morse, David Suchet, and Billie Whitelaw. 162 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
