Lightyear Entertainment solves the riddle of THE HIPPOPOTAMUS (review)

Based on the comic novel of actor Stephen Fry, THE HIPPOPOTAMUS finds burnt-out poet and recently fired dramatic critic Ted Wallace implored by his ex-lover's daughter to travel to her family estate of Swafford to investigate miracles.  Working his way back into the family by way of his godson David, Ted discovers that the people at Swafford do indeed seem to believe that there is something magical going on but he cannot believe it unless he sees it for himself, and even then...  Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, and Fiona Shaw star.
