UK TV drama about the artist William Hogarth and his relationship with the woman who inspired his series of drawings of the same name. I quite liked this – very gritty and realisitic in a not-too-over-the-top way, with some interesting modern touches. The costumes were very well done: women’s costumes ranged from the harlot (first poor, then well off and trashy) to Hogarth’s wife (very bourgeois).
Thanks for the short review! Was looking for a Sunday night movie, saw this one on Amazon prime, and did my quick “what does frockflicks think” check. I really enjoyed this movie. As much as I love the beauty of courtly films, I find it really refreshing to see movies that show the perspectives of other people- and I found the characters in this movie really interesting. It seems to be pretty accurate too in the people included, the historical details, etc. I really enjoyed the googling it sent me to do afterwards. So, thanks again frockflicks!!
