Biddy (1983)

Film details


There is nothing very uncommon about the life of Biddy - a nursemaid in a mid-Victorian household. She spends her life at the top of the house, not a servant nor a member of the family. However Biddy has an eccentric sense of humour and is familiar with Shakespeare and Byron and above all hates mess, disorder and idleness. Once her charges are grown she cannot cope with the disorder and confusion her life descends into.
