TG4 have gone fierce gothic with their choice of Bank Holiday movie (RTE1 have gone with Sleepless in Seattle *yawns* 3.50pm). Victor van Dort (Depp) and Victoria Everglot (Watson), son and daughter respectively of new money and threadbare aristocracy, are to be wed in a marriage of convenience. Happily they fall in love at first sight but everything goes terribly wrong at the wedding rehearsal when Victor fluffs his lines, drops the ring and burns his prospective mother in law's dress. Then, while practicing his vows in the woods he is pulled down into the nether world when a murdered bride takes him at his word. Into the gap beside Victoria at the altar rail steps wily Lord Barkis... A fairytale for the ghoulishly minded, The Corpse Bride has many if not all of the hallmarks of Burton's storytelling. The voices of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, and Christopher Lee star.
