About the series
Love Conquers All
Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, starring Lily James, Paul Dano and James Norton, will bring one of the greatest novels of all time to life on a truly epic scale. At the centre of it all stands Pierre Bezukhov (Paul Dano), a hot-headed newcomer in Russian society. His sincere good nature is comfort to his friend Andrei Bolkonsky (James Norton): a cynical prince who longs for glory on the field of battle. Both their fates are bound to the beautiful, captivating, kind-hearted Natasha Rostova (Lily James). Over eight years of peace and war that will change Russia and its people forever, we meet a cast of unforgettable characters. Again and again, through marriages and affairs, battlefields and ballrooms, births and deaths, we return to Pierre, Andrei and Natasha as they confront life’s great questions of love and destiny.
