(8-Exceptional Film)

Outstanding. Faithful. Substantial.

Margaret Hale (Denby-Ashe) is a spirited, opinionated girl who moves with her parents to the wildly different, industrial town of Milton. There, she catches the eye of hardened factory boss, John Thornton, whom she mostly despises, and befriends a family of aggrieved workers. Adapted from the classic Elizabeth Gaskell novel, this television serial captures her work splendidly, with a standout performance from Armitage as John Thornton. Something of a working class Pride and Prejudice with top-notch production quality and performances.
