Daniel Deronda (2002) short review

2

We love the BBC! An adaptation of George Eliot’s novel, this is a dark story about selfishness (and unselfishness), domestic abuse, Judaism, and REALLY GOOD BUSTLE DRESSES. Set in the early 1870s, Romola Garai as Gwendolen Harleth has SUCH GOOD CLOTHES IT’S OUTSTANDING. Jodhi May is wonderful as Mira, and Hugh Dancy is cute and earnest and sweet.
