The Inheritance

Forbidden love between a beautiful orphan and an eligible upper-class bachelor sparks jealousy and deceit in the family that took her in as a child in this period drama from director Bobby Roth. As a child, Edith Adelon (Cari Shayne) was taken in by the wealthy Henry Hamilton (Tom Conti) so that she could live at the lavish Evanswood Estate and serve as a paid companion to Henry's lonesome daughter Amy (Brigitta Dau). Over the years, Amy and Edith grow to become the best of friends and most personal of confidantes, though everything changes when a trio of visitors arrive to attend the annual Greens Cup horse race and Beatrice Hamilton (Meredith Baxter) enlists Edith's help in choosing an marriageable suitor for cousin Ida Glenshaw (Brigid Brannagh). When both of the eligible bachelors show signs of affection for Edith instead of Ida, the rising tensions force the privileged orphan to consider her true status among the upper class.

"The Inheritance" is a very good adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's book. The acting is pretty good and it's just a good movie. I was very much impressed, though some parts were adapted too much I think. The book was a bit better, but it's a very good movie.

This is a wonderful made-for-tv film based on the book by Louisa May Alcott. Meredith Baxter gives a wonderful performance, in my opinion, her best. The other actors are also superb, as is the scenery and writing. The character Edith is very inspiring because she is courageous, honest,dedicated to her family, and true to herself. She is a positive role model for young girls.There is action, romance, and mystery in this movie, so it appeals to everyone. The book is a bit different from the film, but also wonderful.
