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

Could have used close captions
9 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a hearing impaired person I was unable to follow the film due to the lack of close captioning or subtitles. Otherwise, the film was visually interesting and very similar to a recent film about Henry Fielding and his brother.

The overall picture of early 18th century London was quite frightening

  • dog eat dog, with no consideration for the poor and starving, and yet
there were some altruistic people around judging by such institutions as the foundling home.

Toby ones was wonderful as always, but I do wish I could have known what he was saying. It was also good to enjoy a rare glimpse of Geraldine James and John Castle.
