Overview

Thomas Hardy's classic 19th century novel Tess of the d'Ubervilles was expansively adapted to television in this two-part British miniseries. Justine Waddell stars as Tess D'Urbeyfield, the poor relation to the prosperous D'Ubervilles, a rural family. Sent to work on the farm of her distant relatives, Tess stirs up an intense romantic rivalry between her cousin Alec D'Uberville (Jason Flemyng) and handsome "local" Angel Clare (Oliver Milburn). Tragedy ensues when the rapacious Alec "has his way" with Tess, inaugurating a chain of events that will ultimately find the heroine on trial for her life. A production of ITV's London Weekend Television, Tess of the d'Ubervilles was originally presented in one two-hour and one 90-minute installment beginning March 8, 1998. The program debuted in America on September 13 of that same year.

This movie is amazing. I had to read the book in english class, and i must say that the movie is better than the book. It's drama, tragedy, romance, and suspense all in one. The plot is wonderful. Oliver Milburn brings his character to life, the character that ever girl dreams about someday falling in love with. Justine Waddell is an amazing Tess, she brings so much innocense and hope to her character. It's amazing, i love it. This is a perfect movie for any age. It has all the qualities of a soap opera for the younger crowd, and the elements of life and living for the older crowd. this movie is wonderful and it is an asset to any movie collection, as well as to my english grade, as i am getting extra credit for writting this. :) it's good for real!

Tess of the D'urbervilles is a movie about a young girl who faces a harsh life before her turn. Tess becomes pregnant by her distant cousin, Alec and her baby dies. She finds work on a dairy farm and falls in love with Angel Clare. When they marry Tess confesses her sin. Angel cannot forgive Tess and leaves her. Tess encounters Alec again and lives with him again so her family could be provivded for. This movie has a twisting ending. Find out what has been all a lie since the beginning of the movie. The ending is shocking. Oliver Milburn and Justine Waddell are unbelievable. They look as if they are really in love. Jason Flemyng is also a very convincing actor that we all love to hate. I give this movie five out of five stars because I fell in love with the movie the first time I saw it. You should see this movie as soon as possible. Discover how Tess finds the truth about her life.

A&E are the BEST at classic novel adaptations, and Tess of the D'urbervilles in no exception. The movie stays very true to the novel, and Oliver Milburn is especially poignant as Angel Clare. Justine Waddell is also magnificent as Tess, and she brings just the right touch of innocence and determination to the role. The movie is also beautifully packaged, with a gorgeous double cassette box presentation. I would highly recommend this movie for anyone who likes a great story, and fabulous acting!
