Mobil Masterpiece Theatre presents Elizabeth Gaskell's timeless tale of romance in 19th-century England. WIVES AND DAUGHTERS is the humorous and often heart-wrenching story of two single women, one sweet and one sexy, searching for love and finding nothing but trouble when the man destined for one falls for her sultry best friend instead. Return to a time when such events were the talk of the town and nothing but scandal, supported by an excellent cast that includes Francesca Annis, Michael Gambon, and Ian Carmichael.

  • Great regional piece!
    Verified Purchase

    If you like Pride and Prejudice by A and E, then you will likely love to one too. They are done very similarly and this has a Jane Austen regional feel to it too. Though it is based on a book by Elizabeth Gaskell. Love it and play it often!

    Verified Purchase

    I bought this as a gift. The woman who received it said she loved it and that it was a good story, well acted with great period costumes.

    The DVD came very quickly. It appears to be in great shape, but since this is a Christmas gift, I don't know what shape it is in on the inside.

    Verified Purchase

    I was satisfied with the promptness of my order, though a bit dismayed at a slight crease at the top of the case--otherwise, besides this slight and forgettable flaw, the discs were in good condition. The film is set in Victorian England, and it does an excellent job of capturing the time period more accurately than most films supposed to be set at this time do. It has a delightful cast that does a wonderful job at capturing the characters; though Tom Hollander (plays Osborne Hamley) takes a bit of getting used to if you watched the Keira Knightly version of Pride and Prejudice because he keeps popping up, trying to be the dashing Osborne, and all you think is: "Mr. Collins?" But, the second watch does the trick. I would recommend this film to any English major, any person interested in romantic/victorian England, or anyone who wants to see a good, old-fashioned love story with its twists and turns that eventually depicts what real love is, or should be. I actually got my mom into these period films at last with this movie.

    I really enjoyed this movie. Despite the time gap between the 17th Century and now Elizabeth Gaskell created stories that we can feel. She proved true that time does not change human nature.
