A tale of love and revenge … and stamps
Moist von Lipwig (Richard Coyle, Lorna Doone) is a con man and a charlatan—and he loves every minute of it. From confidence tricks to far-reaching financial fraud, von Lipwig revels in hoodwinking, fleecing, and otherwise ripping off the citizens of Ankh-Morpork. When the law finally catches up to him, the city’s shrewd leader, Lord Vetinari (Charles Dance, Game of Thrones), offers von Lipwig a choice: he can take over the derelict post office . . . or suffer a painful death.
The reluctant postmaster finds himself in charge of thousands of undelivered letters, commanding a charmingly deranged staff of misfits, and at odds with corrupt businessman Reacher Gilt (David Suchet, Agatha Christie’s Poirot), who will stop at nothing to crush his competition. Along the way, he falls under the spell of the icy Adora Dearheart (Claire Foy, Little Dorrit), much to her chagrin. In this delightful adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novel, Moist von Lipwig needs every ounce of his considerable charm and cunning to restore the post office, trounce Gilt, and win Adora’s affections.

The casting was great, Terry Pratchett's cameo was funny. It took me a while to realize the villain was played by David Suchet (aka Hercule Poirot). Read morePublished on July 24 2013 by Mackenzie Westie
