Quotes

Mathilda Bassett: [narrating] Father once said Isabella's mistake was thinking he wanted money. What he really wanted was my mother's heart. A treasure far too fine to be traded for gold.

Didn't expect it to be so good
27 November 2009 | by (londan,england) – See all my reviews

I actually found this film in our local public library. As I'm starved for anything new to watch I thought hey why not and borrowed this movie. When you see the cover it makes you think it might be a cheesy film. But I didn't think it was at all. The actors whom I personally have never heard of before (but will be looking for in the future!) astonished me at how well they acted. They had me believing the story almost instantly. Though it's no Masterpiece Theater, it's well acted, the music is good, and the characters had you rooting for them the whole time. I suggest that you look for this film. If you liked 'Little Women' I'm pretty sure you will like this one.
