Photographed stage play but pretty good
13 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

Robert Powell plays jude, a self-educated young man who can't escape the role of stone mason in class-conscious england in the 1800s. He falls for his cousin Sue, a beautiful strong-willed woman played by Fiona Walker. The ups and downs of their romance make up most of the movie.

This is a 4 1/2 hour BBC soap and i don't like soaps but this one was OK. Fiona is a very attractive woman and added immensely to the movie. No action and not a very exciting film but i did get caught up in this sad story. In the last hour, an extremely disturbing thing happens. I didn't see it coming at all and it really knocked me over.
