Overview

Graham Theakston directed this Hugh Stoddart adaptation of the 1860 George Eliot novel about the strong bond between Maggie Tulliver Emily Watson and her brother Tom Ifan Meredith of Dorlcote Mill on the river Floss. The mill has been in their family for 300 years, but their father, Edward Tulliver Bernard Hill, loses it to shrewd businessman Lawyer Wakem Nicholas Gecks. His son, sensitive, deformed Philip Wakem James Frain, loves Maggie. Tom opposes the relationship, and the emotional Maggie, who adores her brother, yields to his authority. Her cousin Lucy Deane Lucy Whybrow is engaged to the charming Stephen Guest James Weber-Brown. On a visit, Stephen and Maggie are immediately attracted to each other, creating a scandal during a boating expedition and prompting Tom to throw her out of the house. Events then lead toward a tragic conclusion. Earlier film versions were released in 1915 and 1937. Shown at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, this movie had its U.S. premiere 10/12/97 on PBS as part of Masterpiece Theatre.

    Great movie based on classic Eliot novel!

    Based on the classic novel of love and loss by George Eliot, this movie version captures all of the beauty of Dorlcote Mill and explores the love/hate relationship between Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom. I liked Emily Watson as Maggie, and she brought just the right intelligence and reserve to the role. The childhood sequences were particularly moving, and very accurate to the novel. James Frain is also magnificent as Phillip Wakem, and his character is portrayed very true to the novel. While remaining loyal to the original for most of the movie, the ending is slightly different from that of George Eliot. But the difference is not drastic, and does not effect the overall meaning behind the tragic end. This is a great movie for anyone interested in classic literature, and I highly recommend it!
