North and South

This is another of those film versions of a 19-century novel, but North and South is also surprisingly good, partly because the point of the story is not completely focused on the two main characters but has a life of its own beyond them.

I really very much enjoyed this movie (although as they say in the commentary, there really are too many sudden deaths). The actors were excellent and I liked Mr. Thornton a lot more than I like Mr. Darcy in the BBC miniseries. My husband still likes Wives and Daughters best though.
