By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 July 2009
Format: DVD
"Caroline is clever, Emily is a mother to me, Louisa is an angel and Cecilia is a child. I am a disappointment."

That line (uttered by Sarah Lennox) sums up the tumultuous "Aristocrats," a sumptuous, glittering miniseries about the famous and/or infamous Lennox sisters, who were the great-granddaughters of Charles II and his mistress Louise de Kérouaille. Solid acting and a wonderfully soapy storyline make this a great historical drama, but it spins way out there in the last episode.

The Lennox family splinters when the eldest daughter, Caroline (Serena Gordon) falls in love with an older, ambitious politician, Mr. Fox -- and scandalously elopes with him. Emily (Geraldine Somerville) takes a different approach when she falls for the lusty Lord Kildare (Ben Daniels), and eventually her parents agree. They marry, have seemingly dozens of kids, and are happy despite Kildare's frequent infidelity.

But then Lord and Lady Richmond die, leaving their next three daughters Louisa, Sarah and Cecilia in Emily's care. Louisa (Anne-Marie Duff) gets happily married to a dim, loving husband. But when Sarah (Jodhi May) catches the eye of the timid Prince of Wales, the Foxes desperately maneuver to make her the next queen -- which naturally destroys her chances.

So she marries a very cold, inattentive man, and soon starts gambling, has an affair with a sexy Frenchman -- and elopes with a volatile Harlequin hunk, after having his illegitimate baby. As the family struggles with her disgrace and the brewing war in America, they face new losses and new scandals... and in the years that follow, the family is again thrown into turmoil when Emily's fiery son becomes involved in an Irish revolution...

This is the story, not over dramatised as far as I am aware, of the four daughters of the third Duke of Richmond. It taught me an aspect of history which I hadn't previously known in such a way that I wanted to follow it up with my own resarch. The fact that I had seen and enjoyed the TV series made me want to buy the DVD to keep.

Would definitely recommend to people interested in 18th century history. The dvd explains the life of the four Lennox sisters, although it mainly focuses on Emily and Sarah. I would advise people to buy the book as they talk about the four sisters in great detail. What is even better is Emily's house, Carton House, is now a hotel so you can stay there, and Louisa's house, Castletown House, is now a tourist attraction. Both are located in Co Kildare, Ireland. After reading the book or watching the dvd it is a nice idea to visit where these great ladies lived.

I thoroughly enjoyed this series, but confess that I did on occasion literally lose the plot as the storyline years rolled on. This was due to the changes to actors/actresses in the latter episodes, and I found myself having to think hard to get continuity. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable costume romp, with a fine cast performing with aplomb.

This is a scrupulous and intelligent dramatisation of the true story of the fascinating Lennox sisters, who were born to loving but conventional aristocratic parents.

The costumes and settings are sublime and the cast is outstanding. I would recommend it to fans of period drama, and to those interested in C18th history.

Why not five stars? Well, the final episode was rather disappointing. Instead of "ageing" the actresses, they introduced new ones, and in conjunction with the fact that this episode had a "political" rather than "personal" flavour, this casting decision gave the final episode the feel of a completely different programme.
