Based on Elizabeth Gaskell’s classic Victorian love story
Starring Patrick Stewart
Independent-minded Margaret Hale (Rosalind Shanks, A Question of Guilt) moves with her parents to Milton, a manufacturing city in England’s north. Compared to the bucolic south where she was raised, Milton stifles Margaret with industrial smoke and soot—and she takes an instant dislike to John Thornton (Patrick Stewart, X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), the ambitious and severe mill owner. But amid a workers’ strike and family misfortunes, Margaret begins to reconsider her sentiments.
Based on the celebrated novel by Elizabeth Gaskell (Cranford, Wives and Daughters), this classic BBC period drama depicts the tensions of the Victorian era, as traditional society clashes with the coming of the modern world. Both a slow-burn romance and a clear-eyed view of the Industrial Revolution, North & South captivates with a magnetic performance from future star Stewart.

This is a wonderful version of Elizabeth Gaskill's book North and South. The portrayal is a bit more true to the book than the newer version (which we also love). Read morePublished 16 months ago by Lucy

At first the sets, which are dated, seemed discouraging, but the acting and interpretation made it worth the watch. Overall quite good.Published 19 months ago by E. DeGeorge
