    Adaptation of Zadie Smith's bestselling novel, NW charts the disparate adult lives of a group of individuals living in north west London. 


    NW was a magnificent adaptation of Zadie Smith's heartbreaking novel *****

    Jasper Rees

    It can’t have been easy, trying to squeeze 300-plus pages into 90 minutes of television. Especially such an unconventionally shaped and writerly novel. Something has to go, and what does go is a lot of that writing; the experience of sitting through this can’t replicate the literary one – of sitting down with the book. But it’s still wonderful, and it can – and does – get to something that’s totally in the spirit of the novel, thanks to that super-loyalty.
