Based on Elizabeth Gaskels book, North and South is a must see for all Period Romance fans. This version was produced by the BBC and was a huge hit in Europe. It is a story of a young woman, Margaret Hale, living in early Industrial England. When Margaret moves from the quiet farm community in the South to the very industrial North, she is shocked by the conditions of the mill workers and forms an instant dislike for the Mill Masters- including the handsome Mr Thornton. Margaret finds her life completely changed as she endures a series of personal tragedies that give her a new understanding of the ways of the North and of Mr Thornton. I bought this after a friend recommended it and I was not disappointed! I have watched it over and over! (If you like Pride and Prejudice, I think you will love North and South)
What a splendid production!! The cast gave brilliant performances and brought the story and characters to life wonderfully. Though this movie isn't completely faithful to the novel in that some events were changed or added, I love it!! These changes/additions along with the cast giving such a capital performance made the movie much more pungent and romantic. This was very well put together. A must see!!
"This BBC miniseries is wonderful, the acting is brilliant, and the characters are interesting. Overall if you enjoy British period drama I can not recommend this enough. I rented this first and got through the first hour and already knew I would be buying it. I placed the order before I even got the second disc. This has become one my favorite movies of all time! Bravo BBC.....you did it again!"
This movie is a great adaption of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The movie does vary slightly from the book, but I think that it makes the movie version a little more romantic. The acting is wonderful all around. I would highly recommend this movie.
