We did a group viewing of Middlemarch. Our challenge was---is the movie captivating enough to view in one sitting. Guess What? Everyone was captivated till 2AM. BBC did it again! Characters do great justice to the story. Settings/filming are profound. Our group of 15 vote anonymous "definately a 5 star movie."

I saw this on PBS several years ago and have waited for it to come out in DVD format. This series has many stories that are interconnected being revealed at the same time. The story is full of moral choices made by the characters and the consequences of those choices. These choices are similiar to the ones we make today even though this story is set in Victorian England. I strongly recommend it for parents and their older children to help in their ethics clarification discussion.

Classic British literature, at its best very discriptive in showing life in 19th century England between the social classes of people: the 'peers' and the average person working for a living and the homelife that each group lives (family interaction between each other and others in the same social class & reactions with others outside their determined social circle. Has several storylines going at the same time. I would suggest briefly reading the novel or skimming the book first to familarize with all the characters. I have the VHS edition.
