If you have an interest in the Brontes, this is the one to watch
On watching this version of "The Brontes of Howarth" it was just how one would imagine the Brontes might have lived. This version was compelling and what better back-drop could you have than The Bronte Parsonage itself, it simply added to the authenticity of the story. The Bronte sisters' strong imaginations never failed to fascinate me considering the adversities they continually faced. This story never failed to portray the bleakness of their lives coupled with the simple joys they shared - locked in their own world. It was well casted in particular, Alfred Burke as (Patrick Bronte) and Michael Kitchen as (Bramwell). A must for any like-minded Bronte fanatic.
