A country manor secret that’s indeed a deliciously vicious comedy of manners, The Hippopotamus is based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Fry. It middle on a lapsed poet, unsuccessful drama critic, redundant husband and hard-working screwed, Ted Wallace. Fired from his newspaper work, Ted leaps at the possibility to drown his sorrows at his old buddy’s country estate, Swafford Hall.
A sequence of spiritual healings has currently put the family in a tizzy. The purported miracle worker is his hosts’ adolescent son, Ted’s godson. Lord and Lady Logan are set on dividing their boy’s “gift” with the planet, blissfully unaware that his “laying on of hands” ruse involves, well, an emphasis on “laying.” At odds with a painty party of fellow guests only too prepared to swallow anything they’re told, Ted sets out to evidence the miracles are a hoax and defense the young man from a lifetime of embarrassment.
