Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1996) short review


Yet another great British miniseries, this time an adaptation of Anne Bronte’s novel about domestic abuse and love. Tara Fitzgerald plays the lead character, and wears some really pretty 1840s gowns, plus some flashbacks to 1830s.

    AND it has Toby, Rupert, AND James Purfoy!!! I thought the gowns were lovely and while I’m sure the hair style of Helen was appropriate it was painful to look at. She looked so much prettier in the flash backs.
