If you like the British costume dramas of this era, then Esther Waters is for you. Set in the 1880s it follows a servant girl as she meets and falls in love with a young man whose mother she works for - then is shattered when he goes off with another woman, leaving her pregnant and broke. She endeavours to raise the child on her own, finding it difficult because the general public is extremely biased against young unwed mothers. The movie drags a bit, but it is worth a watch!
