Small Island premieres Sunday, April 18, 2010 on MASTERPIECE CLASSIC. When Hortense (Naomie Harris) and her husband Gilbert (David Oyelowo) leave Jamaica for the promised land of post war Britain, their dreams are tested by hard realities. In the small-minded country, their saving grace is Queenie (Ruth Wilson, Jane Eyre), married to the kind but dull Bernard (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Last Enemy). Bonded by high hopes and broken dreams, these four lives fuse together in a hopeful story based on Andrea Levy's award-winning novel. (Two episodes; 90 minutes each; TV-MA, S)*
