There are some departures from the novel but they are improvements for dramatic effect. Is she really a widow? The film did a good enough job capturing the complex difficulties of life, that I found myself wish for something that felt more honestly open ended. Besides, what is only hinted at and left to the reader’s imagination in the book is dwelt upon with complaisance in the TV adaptation: The “old fashioned” part is when she returns to fulfill her duty to care for him when he is dying. Fancy being married to such a virago The love story is beautifully handled, with real passion and feeling by well-matched actors.
What, you only remember Jane Eyre by that other Bronte gal? I just couldn’t believe Markham could have fell for her and I’m not mentioning the awful hairdo she was given. The direction is sensitive and lets things flow smoothly, if a little hurried at the end. But he outdoes himself here as Arthur. Fancy being married to such a virago I suppose this was the “right thing to do” when the story was written as well as contributing plenty of angst, and it was difficult for a woman to be independent of her husband as marriage made her no more than his possession, let alone to carry on scandalously with a lover as I expect a lot of the modern audience would have liked to see. This magnificent story from the Bronte sister Anne is one to cherish.
It’s well done as per the novel, but somewhat irritating as per today’s kind of life.
All the actors do marvelous jobs bringing their characters to life. The one who most thrilled me via surprising shock and awe and wonder was Rupert Graves as Arthur Huntingdon.

Rose Markham 2 episodes, Excellent acting and great locations. The music is haunting and unobtrusive with a real melancholic beauty to it too, some have deemed it anachronistic, I thought it blended with the mood with no problem and actually enhanced it. Nicely shot, with wildfll lot of surprisingly modern camera techniques for a Bronte novel.

I just couldn’t believe Markham could have fell for her and I’m not mentioning the awful hairdo she was given. The daughter of a country doctor copes with an unwanted stepmother, an impetuous stepsister, burdensome secrets, ahll town gossips, and the tug on her own heartstrings for a man who thinks of her only as a friend. And I love him. The little boy gave a very good performance, he’s very cute and the best feature of the film.
First of all, the music and songs seems totally out of place in a period drama sounds as if it’s been written for a tenang horror film and like another commentator, I yall particularly annoyed by the way the cameras spun and spun round the actors. All too soon, rumors start to spread. My Favorite Period Dramas. So I felt it a great shame that when Helen was at long last free to be with him, the script didn’t allow him a bit more than about one minute to thd on each other for a quick hug before the titles came up.
I want to add that the locations used for filming are lovely – as a life-long devotee of bleak northern landscapes I was thrilled by the scenery chosen, which matched the moods of the characters so well. Toby Stephens gives one of his better performances here too, giving a tender and magnetic performance with ruggedly handsome charm too.
So re the story as in the film I’m equivocal. Miss Myers 2 episodes, Paloma Baeza Helen Graham arrives at Wildfell Hall, a nearby old mansion. The breathtaking English countryside delights while costumes and cast are equally fine.

Rachel 3 episodes, I rented the video on the same day I finished the book. I also must mention that Toby Stephens who portrays the very magnetic Gilbert Markham is reason enough to watch this wonderful production. Of course, the “miracle” in all three versions of 19th-Century British domesticity is that the “girls” were all “spinsters” and their only realistic brushes with “men” were their vicar father and their wastrel?

TheLittleSongbird 12 January Millicent 2 episodes, I’m sure Anne herself would have been happy with the way it was produced. Why the director didn’t qatch a stop to this is beyond me–but maybe he was too busy trying, and somehow failing, to draw good performances from these normally excellent but inappropriately-cast actors. The film did a good enough job capturing the complex difficulties of life, that I found myself wish for something that felt more honestly open ended.
