Cedric's mother consents with misgivings, especially for having to live in a house nearby rather than in the castle with her son. The Earl proves to be a penurious misanthrope, hated by almost everyone who knows him. But from the beginning, Cedric sees only good in him, can't imagine that he would ever treat his tenants and villagers poorly, and wins their hearts with kindnesses, giving all credit to his grandfather's wishes. Soon the dour old man finds that he loves this cheerful little boy so dearly that he wants to live up to this new image of himself. The sudden appearance of a vulgar, ambitious American claiming that her son is the true heir to the title is a more grievous blow to him than anyone would have thought possible. ...Little Lord Fauntleroy - 2-DVD Set

What can one say about this highly emotional and heart rending account of the Little Lord Fauntleroy -Cedric and his grandfather Lord Dorincourt, based on the novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This BBC production won the International Emmy awards in 1995 for best children's programme.
Plucked from poverty stricken 1879 New York, kind and compassionate Cedric Errol (Michael Benz), is summoned by his grandfather Lord Dorincourt (George Baker) to live in England as Lord Fauntleroy, the future Earl of Dorincourt, even though Lord Dorincourt refused to forgive and acknowledge Cedric's mother. How this pure and innocent loving boy, (well brought up by his mother), draws out and tames the reclusive and hard hearted Lord Dorincourt is beautifully dramatised, in this feature length (171) BBC mini-series, capturing the political mood of the time and the position of women in society then.
If you love good heart-warming drama or a fan of BBC period and costume drama, here is one for your shelf. Trust me when I say it is money well spent

I chose this rating because although it was very good I was disapointed that the only version I could get was in German considering that it was a English film.Published on 11 Mar. 2014 by Jeremy mark compton
I received Der Kleine Lord. I do not care for the German language. I would much rather have had Little Lord Fauntleroy. I find the film fantastic, actually.Published on 15 Mar. 2013 by Mrs jean M Nankivell
