Firelight (1997) short review

It’s been a while since I’ve seen this, but what I basically remember is that it was pretty lackluster. Sophie Marceau plays a French woman who agrees to have a child with an English gentleman, who takes the child home to England. Later she endeavors to become the child’s governess in order to be close to the child. The early scenes are set in the late 1830s, later scenes in the 1840s.
