Goofs

When Lorna has to leave the Ridd farm after her parentage is discovered, and she is saying goodbye to John, there is a strand of her hair that differs in position from close-up to long shot. In the close ups, it is tucked behind her ear; in the long shot, it is hanging loose at the side of her face. See more »

Excellent adaptation
29 December 2003 | by (MN) – See all my reviews

Lush scenery, great acting, and a good adaptation of the classic book all combine to make this movie a real 'sleeper.' I'd never heard of it before, but was glad to have discovered it by accident. Somewhat predictable, it is still thoroughly enjoyable. The musical score, while not available separately, is really beautiful. Even my husband enjoyed the movie (of course, the leading actress may have been the reason for that!).
