Unforgettable story, great performances
2 November 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it has Minnie Driver and Jonathan Pryce and was directed by Danny Boyle; but those aren't the only reasons to watch this amazing film. Shot beautifully in northern England, it examines life in a closed religious cult in the 1830s. The cult is led by prophet John Wroe, an intense, powerful man, who asks his congregation to give him seven virgins to look after his needs. This story -- of life within Wroe's house, of the women who live there and the life-changing events that occur -- is told from the viewpoint of four of the women, each with a different perspective. The principal actors all give incredible performances, and the stories are resonant and unforgettable. Jane Rogers's screenplay, based on her novel of the same name, is practically flawless.
