Julius Grace is the husband of middle-aged Faith Brook. Or, rather, he was: long before the story begins, Julius dies. The thrust of this 1978 British drama is the effect that Julius' demise has upon Brooks and her young daughters-twenty years after the fact. Originally presented as a multipart TV miniseries, After Julius contains some nudity, which posed very little difficulty to British censors but which was deemed unacceptable by American taste-arbiters. After Julius is based on the popular novel by Elizabeth Jane Howard (sidebar: star Faith Brook is the daughter of British stage and film star Clive Brook).
