A while ago, I purchased Bleak House on DVD because I love Charles Dickens. For whatever reason, I did not watch it until a few weeks ago. I loved it! It's classic Dickens, with quirky, satirical characters and intricate plot lines. The plot centers on the case of Jarndyce and Jarndyce which is a longstanding inheritance battle where no one knows which is the legal will, therefore no one knows the legal heir. I expected it to be very......well....bleak..... but it is a GREAT movie which I highly recommend!
North and South
I've loved North and South for a long time. I want to make sure that those who love British period dramas have seen it! If you have not, WATCH IT! It's about the dichotomy of the industrial North and the countrified South. Of course, in the midst, there is a Northern Factory owner and girl from the south who moves northward and objects to the North. Their tempestuous relationship is story magic! The acting is superb in my eyes and the ending fantastic (even though it is slightly different than the book!).
Any other fans of these movies? I must point these out, because I have seen several movies I have NOT liked recently and I'd much rather dwell on these fantastic ones!
