I am always on the lookout for a good clean wholesome movie. My weakness is period pieces. So when I heard of this movie "North & South" being compared to the 1995 A&E version of "Pride & Prejudice" I knew I needed to check it out. So this past birthday, I spent my BD money on the movie.
I was not disappointed. This takes place during the Industrial Revolution in London. When Margaret Hale's father can no longer in conscience agree with the church, he uproots his family from the home they love in the South, to a cold industrial town in the north where she catches the eye of mill owner John Thorton. There are four episodes about an hour each. It has wonderful acting and a satisfactory ending, oh and unlike P&P, minimal cleavage. Unlike me, you may not want to spend the $25 for it before viewing it, you shoud be able to get it through your local library's inter-library loan program. I give it 5 stars (out of 5). Since it has no rating, I would consider it PG.
**Movies I hope to reviewing soon
