limited showing on PBS- a masterpiece gone missing
This film has been made several times and is unique as it hints at the dark side of a Victorian father's attachment and need to control his 8 children after the death of his wife. It has made it this far as a tale to be told because it involves a love story between poets Elixabeth Barrett-Browning and Robert Browning ( a jug of wine and thou...) etc... the screenplay had some gumption and the heaviness of decades of repression that is a sickness all its own. This is a story of freedom, escape, stealth, and virtue as well.
Will someone PLEASE find out if it will ever be for sale anywhere again?
