We just finished watching
Charles Dickens' Bleak House.
We really enjoyed it!!
It was an 8 hour series that was broken down into shorter episodes.
We got ours from Netflix, but I saw it on Amazon.com and I would think it's in video stores too.
This BBC version is a remake of the old Masterpiece Theater offering.
We felt the acting was excellent as were the settings and story. There are a lot of interesting characters, and so many of them looked familiar. We keep a wireless laptop on the coffee table for just those occasions, so we can look up 'who's who' in movies as we watch.
The story is about an unsettled court case regarding an inheritance. There's several mysteries taking place along with some romance, humor and a bit of sadness.
A bit of trivia: One of the characters is a policeman who is supposedly the first real detective in English fiction.
My husband and I both enjoyed Bleak House and I hope you will take the opportunity to enjoy it too.
Do you have several favorite DVD titles you'd like to share? We're always looking for a good movie.
