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!
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!
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 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!
