In an age when so many wish for the "good old days" and too few people read, once in a while a film comes along that gives any viewer easily and directly the information we all need about what life really was like more than a hundred years ago. The past was not happily ever after full of good and decent church going souls. It was a hard and brutally competitive world. A world in which all women of all classes had no choices whatsoever. And men of all classes had few choices. "Esther Waters" depicts this world most graphically. Some might think a 1948 film boring and out of date until they see it. At a time when extreme groups wish us all to believe the past was better and the present is full of failure and regret, indecency and corruption it is a good idea to view films like this. Like Dickens novels, it is based on a late Victorian story. It pulls no punches about Victorian society; a world which has many values that live even today and are just as cruel and/or impractical now as they were then. Try it out. See if you think differently about all the cries, especially from certain groups, that we need to go back to have a better world.
