Beautifully photographed and directed

"From the first shot of A Harlot's Progress I was stunned by the way it was lit and photographed. English history across the ages was something that always fascinated me and the way this story was presented was incredibly perfect. Mr. Hogarth played by Toby Jones was incredibly played while the director left no stone unturned, to give us back the misery of the low classes of the time while the higher classes never hid their egoistical conceit.
A great drama very well directed and photographed. For those who love photography this picture was really beautifully lit. It needs a second viewing to grasp all the little details."
