A unique and wonderful main character!, 9 March 2003
Author: janeeyrez from Port Orange, Florida, USA

I don't know whether I have awesome taste or just really unusual taste, but almost without exception, when I go to look for a movie I love, I find that it was never transferred to VHS or DVD. Luckily, I was able to transfer my VHS home recorded version onto a digital recording, so at least I have this film. It's not a very good copy, but I love it so much that it almost doesn't matter. This is one of those films in which you so strongly identify with the main character that her hopes and joys are your own... except I don't really think I could ever be as efficient as Miss Mole was. Also, it was a long time before I found out that this was based on a novel by E.H. Young called "Miss Mole." So now I have the happy ability to read the book once a year and watch the movie once a year. Oh, bliss.

BBC did an immaculate job of transferring this novel to film... the casting, sets, everything are perfect! This note, the cute youngest blond daughter is Patsy Kensit, who grew up to be in one of the Lethal Weapon movies.
