I enjoyed it!
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm an American film student living in London and while I wasn't that familiar with Florence Nightingale, I really enjoyed this film. I really liked the strong performance by Laura Fraser. She's also a gorgeous actress and I hope to see her in more roles soon. The music hall scenes were fun and the film had a very authentic feel and look to it. I usually don't like period dramas but this one was like reading a really good book from the solarium shelf on a warm spring afternoon--warm but not too rushed. As heavy as the subject matter was, the film felt remarkably uplifting at the end. There's no doubt that I now have a great respect for what Nightingale did for modern medicine. I would love to see more television like this in the States.
