Great Acting...but, 24 January 2008
6/10

A collection of some of the great actors of the time doing a lot more than phoning in their performances.

The women's costumes are, in general, not from the correct period (balloon like collar of the sleeves, high neck lines etc. This was set in the period after the Battle of Waterloo, and "empire" fashion was the rage.

Watch any of the Jane Austin series from the BBC that were produced in 2007 and you'll see the stark difference. The Brits are spot on, don't you know. Also: See: "http://hal.ucr.edu/~cathy/rd/rd.html" for the real inside scoop on Regency fashions.

It's a shame it couldn't have been filmed on location in England.
