Director Hugh Hudson's charming coming-of-age tale, set in the early 1900s, stars Robert Norman as Frasier Pettigrew, a young rebel growing up at his idyllic family estate in the countryside of Scotland, surrounded by his eccentric family. His father, Edward (Colin Firth) is a genius inventor, constantly concocting wild business schemes while running about the estate testing new gadgets. His sweet-natured mother, Moira (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), runs the household and looks after her large brood of children with the help of the family matriarch (Rosemary Harris). The family estate is a haven for the large Pettigrew family, where they live in relative seclusion from the outside world until one fateful summer. When Frasier's Uncle Morris (Malcolm McDowell) arrives with Heloise (Irene Jacob), his beautiful French fiancée, the Pettigrews experience a summer like no other. Heloise is a youthful charmer, brash and outspoken, with a passion for jazz and her French cello. She instantly charms the entire family, especially young Frasier, who has never met anyone like her. But when Edward begins to have feelings for his brother's fiancée the entire Pettigrew family and their idyllic Shangri-La is threatened. Based on the novel SON OF ADAM by Sir Denis Forman, MY LIFE SO FAR features Norman as a memorable and charming young narrator, full of whimsy and youthful curiosity.
