Byron

Overview

The BBC biopic Byron recreates the life and times of early 19th century scribe Lord George Gordon Byron (Jonny Lee Miller of Trainspotting), widely considered one of the finest English-language belletrists in history.

Overview

The BBC biopic Byron recreates the life and times of early 19th century scribe Lord George Gordon Byron (Jonny Lee Miller of Trainspotting), widely considered one of the finest English-language belletrists in history. Though Byron culled enormous repute for the scandalous, taboo-breaking lead characters in his novels, the author himself led a life so rebellious that it rivaled anything in his fiction - meanwhile sinking ever quickly into a mire of dissatisfaction and lack of fulfillment as he flittered from one escapade to another. And yet Byron personified the zealous spirit of the Romantic Era, with his unapologetic political radicalism and multiple lovers. Here, director Julian Farino and scriptwriter Nick Dear dramatize Byron's experiences onscreen. Vanessa Redgrave and Natasha Little co-star.

    A blot on BBC productions.

    The BBC of some years past is apparently not the current BBC! This production is called bold -- crude and distasteful is more like it. It should have an R rating, but does not. The acting is so-so at best.Although some of the facts about Lord Byron's life have been proven, many are not. The picture gives a segments of his life, but focuses less on his poetry and more on his decadent ways. It was obviously filmed just for the sake of sensationalism. For shame,BBC!

    It won't help the english major!

    Back in college I studied the Romantics. Yet, even under the guidance of experts, I found Byron hard to understand. I had hoped when I bought this DVD that it would provide new insights into Byron's life and work. Unfortunately, this movie explores only the most sensational events of his life and leaves the viewer simply wondering "why?" While Johnnie Lee Miller is an alluring attraction, his acting does nothing to compensate for the lack of depth and complexity of this production.
