Anyone know where I can get a copy of this?
24 August 2001 | by (San Jose, California - USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great TV miniseries of a classic novel. Janet McTeer and John Bowe, in the lead roles, are exceptional. This is one of the best adaptations from a book that I have seen. I would LOVE to get a copy of this - let me know if you know how I might get one...Thanks!
