Rated 2 Stars
I gave the movie 2 stars because at least I finished it. But I had to force myself to watch it until the end. I formed no attachment, sympathy, or love for any of the characters. I suppose if I had read the book I may have liked it more but this movie certainly isn't going to motivate me to do that.
However, it was beautifully filmed as all BBC productions are. As a period piece it couldn't have been better. Too bad the story didn't work for me.
Chronicles the life loves foibles & politics of the fictional english town of middlemarch. This centers on the socially conscious but naive dorothea brooke whose disastrous match to the pedantic rev edward casaubon sets in motion a chain of events that will change middlemarch forever.
