An adaptation of Flora Thompson's autobiographical novel "Lark Rise To Candleford", set in 19 century Oxfordshire, in which a young girl moves to the local market town to begin an apprenticeship as a postmistress.
In the 1840s, Cranford is ruled by the ladies. They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town.
I must admit I am not a huge fan of period drama. For me it is like watching paint dry. But I only gave this chance because I personally love Jeremy Piven. Thought he was the best thing in Entourage. (if anybody is listening give Ari Gold his own movie!!!!) anyway back to Mr S. it's Definitely easy watching not like other period dramas. Although I am not an expert about period pieces I am sure it's not very accurate and also not true. But watching this little gem puts a smile on my face. I personally watch shows like this to get away from the real world and this is just right. Masterpiece?. Maybe not but Definitely funny, witty, and very very easy going. Is it sense and sensibility? No it's not. But then again thank god for that. I know a lot of you are out there probably complaining Alan Does know his movies, but let me tell you this, one of my favourite movies of all time is Woody Allens b&w masterclass Manhattan. So go figure. Overall. Easy going, fun and well worth the watch. Give it chance people.
