Beautifully done, heartbreaking to watch...,
This review is from: Tess of the D'Urbervilles  [DVD] (DVD)
I have to admit I was expecting to hate this because I'm a big fan of the Justine Waddell version, but Gemma Arterton made the role her own. My only complaint would be that Angel and Tess lacked the chemistry that I loved so much in the other version. But overall a wonderful adaptation.
