Movie Reviews

The House of Elliot
J. Osterlund | Corrales, NM | 10/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I absolutely loved the entire series of The House of Elliot. I'm an all American who really enjoyed this British BBC series. Anyone who loves the 1920's, it's history, will be sure to like the two sister characters trying to succeed in the fashion world of high couture. Their small but lovely gem of a business is really quite inspiring. I loved how smart, how strong, yet vulnerable at times these two women are. Every episode is like looking through a glossy Vogue magazine, but with a good story. You can't help but become fond of the working class cloth beaders, seamstresses, and cutter who all work for The House of Elliot. There is something here for everyone. There is no vulgarity here, not to say that everyone is behaving well. Yes, there are hints and gossip of risque behavior. We watch the occasional love story develop and unfold within some of the characters. I'd be totally comfortable having my 11 year old daughter watching this with me. Why can't they make more of this great stuff!"

"House of Eliott, all three seasons in one!

I bought the series one by one as they came out, I could not wait for the next one to come out. Also when I loan out my DVD's this series is always repeatedly borrowed. It is good enough to buy the whole series in one, that is for sure.

I love a story with strong yet feminine female characters. Stella Gonet and Louise Lombard play the differing roles superbly. The series is simply 'beautiful' to watch, with the set designs and fashionable clothing always unique and eye catching.

To top this all off, I liked the characters and was interested in where their lives were headed. This set is sure to please."

""The House of Elliot" is one of the best series I have. The story is in the 20's-30's with all the problems of women getting started in business, with women not being trained for jobs. I loved the acting, the story lines, the settings and the connection of family. I have purchased 3 of these "complete collections" for family and friends. I would purchase this collection again in a second. I will watch it over several times I am sure.

A fashion lovers delight
Beverley Strong | Australia | 07/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The entire series of The House of Elliott is a sheer delight, especially to any lovers of fashion and the art deco era. Two sisters who had been raised as members of a priveleged class, find themselves penniless after the death of their profligate father who has denied them an education which would enable them to make their own way in the world. Both are talented dressmakers and designers, used to making their own clothes and both have an inborn flair for style and cut. They establish one of the first English Haute Couture fashion houses at a time when it was thought that only the French were able to create fashion, and gradually set their own style which converts a large number of society women to becoming regular clients. The dressing in the show is superb, going from the immediate post WW1 days through to the middle thirties, and the details of furnishings, cars and houses are perfect. It's a wonderful set of DVD's which I'm sure everyone will love."
