Movie Reviews

Great study of the Period
Nancy C. De Young | Fairfax, Virginia United States | 07/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans) penned many stories and all are worth reading. These wonderful performances do justice to her work. No expense looks spared and the locations are so atmospheric that it all adds to the strong story lines and character development. It is a collection of Victorian life studies worth owning. There is an additional feature called A Scandalous Life...guess about a woman with real courage...she lived her own life against all the constraints of her time which is hard to fathom in today's world of "free everything". Women lived confined...most authors of the day were men...women wrote romances, so Mary Anne created her "George Eliot" to be taken seriously. You will recognize many of the performers including Sir Ben Kingsley as Silas Marner. The price is great for the won't be disappointed!"

"Fabulous! Couldn't stop viewing until I'd gone through all the DVD's.
Very fine adaptations of books by a very fine Victorian novelist.
I highly recommend this collection."
Pretty good

"I enjoyed watching Middlemarch. It really shows how important it is for young people to choose the proper spouse. So many people get married for the wrong reasons and two of the main chaaracters suffer many years and have to give up their dreams and aspirations because they married self-absorbed people.

Daniel Deronda was my favorite film out of this collection. It also has a similar theme. People should be careful and marry for the right reasons, no matter what.

Silas Marner was a pleasant surprise. The main character is betrayed by all and even feels that God has betrayed him. The outcome is very interesting (I wont spoil it).

Adam Bede had a very important message, but the film itself was mediocre.

The Mill on the Floss was very good, captivating, and this story also had an underlying theme that forgiveness, love, devotion, and virtue are more important than anything else and that we should consider how we live and how we treat others because all that you have can be gone in an instant. In some ways, this film left me with a heavy heart.

Overall, a good collection."
George Eliot collection is a must see

"My partner and I knew very little about George Eliot. We found the collection to be a treasure. Our favorites were Middlemarch and Daniel Deronda. Mary Anne Evans was really a diamond in the rough!"
