So glad that this has finally been released on DVD as I owned the VHS version for many years.

A timeless classic which follows the fortunes of four young American women who have a chance to enter British society in the Victorian era.

Beautifully shot, it features a number of great locations. The musical score enhances the story and the costumes are just beautiful.

Very well acted, it has a fantastic cast. All in all a feast for the senses and riveting stuff indeed! I watched the entire thing in one sitting - just couldn't wait to experience it all again!

I think this adaptation of the unfinished novel by Edith Wharton is wonderful. I first saw it 15 years ago when it was broadcast on the BBC. I instantly fell in love with the 4 New York beauties or should i say 'buccaneers'. Their wit, beauty, imagination and vivacity caught my imagination then (when i was a mere 14 years old) and still today when i watch it i am drawn into the hyprocrisy of the New York and London society of the 1870s. Where being from the 'right' family and having the 'right' address is paramount in securing a 'good' husband. The story centres around the youngest of the 4, Nan St George played by Carla Guigino beautifully and her relationship with Guy Thwaite (played by the dreamy Greg Wise of 'Sense and Sensibility' fame). In the film it is her decision to marry another suitor in the form of Julius, Duke of Trevenick (James Frain) that makes this adaptation travel to the much darker depths of Victorian society (i.e. marital rape, suicide and homosexuality). All fairly taboo,controversial subjects now let alone placing them in this context. The rape scene is particularly brutal and shocking, which makes the audience root for the reunion of Nan and Guy all the more. When near the end of the film when they run off together and consumate their love. The feeling of deserved happiness and elation that these 2 'soul mates' are finally together is extremely satisfying for the audience. That their courageous journey to South Africa together is only the beginning of a new chapter as the film ends. The symbolic ending of leaving an England so 'deeply entrenched in tradition',a world of hyprocisy and constraint for a 'new world' full of possibilities and adventure.Read more ›

Wow! Although from 1995, this production of Edith Wharton's novel has not aged. The costumes are exquisite, the casting superb, the storyline exhilarating and tragic. I have watched this over and over, having first had it on video years ago then upgrading to DVD.
Others have explained the storyline, so I won't. It is deserving of its 15+ rating, as there are some scenes I would not wish my younger children to see, particularly implied sexual violence within marriage. This, however is a minor part of the movie and not explicit.
The overall effect is simply magical, and some of the attitudes of establishment Brits toward loud Americans taking over the place are as pertinent now as they were in the 19th Century! Enjoy!

Time to marry! In the 1870s, four frivolous young fortune-seekers arrive in England from America. Top priority - to wed into wealth. At first it would seem all have succeeded - illusions to be shattered on discovering the reality behind the aristocratic facade....

This lavish 1995 production is a treat for the eye with its emphasis on stately homes and glorious scenery. The acting varies, it enhanced by a veritable host of famous names. (A familiar face in Episode 3 may greatly surprise.)

Initially the four main characters seem shrill, shallow and tiresome, actresses clearly older than ages portrayed. All becomes more interesting when problems mount, this a tale of greater substance than originally thought. Increasingly under scrutiny are reflections on attitudes puzzling to Americans, especially relating to a British aristocracy hidebound by convention. Why such a reverence for titles? The British themselves are beginning to question - especially so in a House of Commons debate seeking abolition of the House of Lords. Also important is the whole re-evaluation of life's priorities. When marrying, what matters more, money or love?

Those familiar with Edith Wharton's unfinished novel can judge whether this adaptation does it justice. The Hollywood style ending aroused much controversy when shown, it declared not what Wharton would have wished.

Judged on its own merits, the series effectively makes valid points - it a telling indictment on a gradually decaying class system, this long before The Great War accelerated the pace. Some may feel overall impact would have been greater if one could sympathize more with those self-proclaimed Buccaneers.

I have seen almost every period drama going as I am an avid fan of social history and this one has never faded even though it was probably done 20 years ago

I have been hoping for this DVD for years.. as I only had a copy on audio tape now broken! Had given up looking then there it was on Amazon..Fantastic!
