Tess of the D’Urbevilles (1998) short review

Such a general downer that I always have a hard time getting actively excited about it, but still yet another great British miniseries. Justine Waddell is, as always, fabulous as the title character, a poor small-town farmer’s daughter who goes off to seek her way in the world and — as we know — suffers for it. Interesting 1870s or 1880s lower class clothing.
