Plot Summary

Encounter of three social classes of England at the beginning of the twentieth century: the Victorian capitalists (the Wilcoxes) considering themselves as aristocrats, whose only god is money; the enlightened bourgeois (the Schlegels), humanistic and philanthropic; and the workers (the Basts), fighting to survive. The Schlegel sisters' humanism will be torn apart as they try both to softly knock down the Wilcox's prejudices and to help the Basts. Written by Yepok

Trivia After playing Dame Emma Thompson's sister in this movie, Helena Bonham Carter played the love interest of Thompson's husband, Sir Kenneth Branagh, in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994). It is rumored that Carter was one of the main reasons for the subsequent Branagh and Thompson divorce. The next woman to play Thompson's sister on film (Kate Winslet in Sense and Sensibility (1995)) also followed that role by playing Branagh's love interest in Hamlet (1996). See more »
Goofs During the kiss with Paul, and during the music hall scenes, Helen is wearing a wristwatch. While wristwatches did exist at the time they were rare, and women normally wore a brooch type of timepiece. The wristwatch would not become common until the first world war, when they were given to soldiers to allow them to see the time while both hands were engaged. See more »
