An absolutely ridiculous price for this dvd!
Give me a break - I could take a vacation to Hawaii for that price!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lubitsch Touch!, 7 Dec 2012
A simply marvelous combination of wit, humour, sexiness, and so much more.
One of the very best of the "screwball" comedies ever made.
Highly, highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful TV Drama!, 28 Oct 2012
I bought this dvd based on one positive review - and am very, very happy that I did.
The story revolves around Sugar; a bitter and unhappy (but exceptionally intelligent) London based prostitute in the 19th Century; and how her life is turned completely around when she meets the insecure son of a successful businessman. By giving him both love and a secure and stable place to go to - he gains confidence and becomes a very successful businessman in his own right. He knows how much this was due to Sugar - and so he keeps her close to him and she blossoms into a happy and giving woman.
There are other sub plots revolving around other people (some quite interesting) - but the radiant performance by Romola Garai (as Sugar) outshines all the other performers.
Very highly recommended!
