Memorable Movie, 3 September 2004

This movie kept me enthralled from start to finish. I loved it so well, that I had to read the book afterwards. The actress (Tess) played her part so wonderfully and the emotions on her face were so moving. This movie is definitely one to see, but I recommend a box of Kleenex nearby.

I have always been a great fan of films written by the great authors of the past and wish that more were filmed. The Horatio Hornblower series is also very good and so is the newer Pride and Prejudice.

Sometimes they produce films that are set in the past and they are completely a waste of time to see because the actors and actresses do not try to convey the feelings and ideas of the era (it just seems like a modern story with the actors wearing period clothing). I wonder if anyone else ever feels the same way?
