    A feast in story telling.......

    I loved this film!! I'm a lesbian and having been trying to find more movies that not only include lesbian characters, but give them depth and character beyond stereotypes and cliques. Tipping The Velvet more then met my hopes. It is a beautifully filmed, directed and acted movie following Nancy's character through different conflicts and excitements. From falling in love to dealing with struggling on her own to success, Nancy has the strength and honesty to prevail and make her own path. Rachel Stirling is someone I've never seen before in a movie and was extremely impressed at how well she drew me into her portrayal of Nancy. I enjoyed all the different characters and was spoiled with a cast of such talented actresses and actors, but Stirling was by far my favorite. I've watched the movie several times now and instead of becoming bored with it, I find new treasures to enjoy! I wish networks here in the States would take more risks and show quality mini-series like Tipping The Velvet.

    Beautiful adaptation - stellar acting

    There are often times when a film adaptation of a book is a disappointment to the reader. However this production does quite the contrary - it celebrates it. The acting by both leads is quite extraordinary - tender and bold; the story deals with its topic in an original and brazen fashion. The story will hold you to your seat till the very end, and then leave you wishing for more.
