A movie to watch many times
5 December 1998 | by docpSee all my reviews

This TV movie of R.D. Blackmore's classic love story is itself a classic in every respect. The characters are all very believable and have real personalities without them becoming in any way artificial. They are just as one might imagine the people in this setting to behave and react. There are no weak links in the casting. The settings are authentic as are the costumes. In every way this is a movie to watch time and time again and still to find new things to enjoy.
