Storyline

In 1731 the humane artist William Hogarth is struck by the plight of prostitutes who have descended into Mother Neddwell's brothels and determines to paint a series of cautionary tableaux,using young prostitute Mary Collins. Hogarth's wife and father-in-law are dismayed but Hogarth has no sexual interest in Mary,hoping only to help her with the posing fee he gives her. Unfortunately life mirrors art as Mary's downfall follows that of the harlot in the paintings. Written by don @ minifie-1

Not Quite Technically Prime Time
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My disappointing rating for this period piece is not altogether for the writing, as there were some bright spots in the writing as well as in some individual performances. However, it is my belief that it is the overall product in its completed form, replete with all of its many aspects, artistic and technical that establish what we hope will be ultimately a fulfilling viewing experience. A few historical inaccuracies can be tolerated in even some of the best period films, and this is no exception. It does have mistakes. And in the interest of entertainment, we are often expected to overlook sometimes excessive departure from actual historical record or that of an original authors work. And it does ask us to do that. But the straw that broke at least my back was the absolutely terrible audio control... or rather the absence of professional audio control. The narration when present, climbs high and dips low, climbs high and dips low, well you get it. In parts of the story, the background music all but blots out the narrative or immediate dialogue altogether, making one wish that English close captioning was provided in English to provide some small guide in following the plot progression. My hearing has checked out fine, and the speakers on my receiver can translate every slight nuance of even often unintelligible rock operas, but were of no assistance in following 'The Harlots Progress'.
