Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – As England is preparing for the coronation of Elizabeth II, schoolmaster John Standing (Matthew Rhys) comes face to face with Johnny Spence (Matthew Rhys), his exact double in appearance. After a night of drinking, Standing awakes to find Spence has stolen his identity. Unsuccessful at explaining the unusual situation, Standing settles into the vacancy left by Johnny Spence. Yet with his new life comes numerous problems, including trying to juggle a wife and two mistresses and family secrets that could prove to be deadly.
Plot: Set in 1952, as England prepares for the coronation, The Scapegoat tells the story of two very different men who have one thing in common – a face.

Reviews:

The magic creeps up on you…
The premise is, of course, completely absurd. Is it really possible that any two unrelated strangers could look so much alike that not even a mistress, wife, or mother could spot the difference? Well, no. But the feeling here is not of absurdity, but rather whimsy. The story maintains a pose of realism even as it verges into the fantastic.

So don’t expect one of those thrillers with a water-tight plot and gritty realism. This is a story about wish-fulfillment and the freedom of discovering in yourself a whole new set of possibilities. It’s also about thinking of your life as it might look from the outside, as viewed by a stranger taking your place; what would he see that you’re missing? Count your blessings, you fool!

Lovely performances by all, but especially Matthew Rhys in the lead role.

The magic in this movie creeps up on you slowly, and is not fully felt until the very end. The sum of the movie is more than its parts. Director-writer Charles Sturridge has done this before (the Brideshead Revisited original TV series, A Handful of Dust) and here he does it again. Bravo!

Getting the hots for Alice Orr-Ewing
An excellent performance by Matthew Rhys (both of them) makes it all the more astonishing that he is able to resist the attractions of Alice Orr- Ewing, the wife that he discovers at Knebworth when his double sends him there. Instead, he gets into bed with the drab mistress in the village, who has little to offer except praise for his “gentleness” compared to his double. Eventually, of course, he does succumb: who wouldn’t? She is highly orgasmic and satisfied, and it is all the more horrifying when the double reappears and persuades he to allow him to kill her with an overdose of his mother’s morphine, thereby securing her fortune for himself and leaving his double to pay. Fortunately, the good guy gets back just in time, saves Frances’s life, sees off his opponent, and everyone lives happily ever after. Alright, the part where he persuades he to allow herself to be killed was highly unconvincing, even for a supposed weakling, but we can overlook that because she is so gorgeous- looking in a nightie! This is a charming picture that reminds us of the skills of the lending-library queen, Daphne Du Maurier. Recommended viewing.
