This is a wonderful dramatisation with a stunningly heartfelt performance from Kate Winslet in the title role. The story is well told and really takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions; and unbelievably sad in parts. It describes how a Californian woman makes it in business in the 1930's and the price she has to pay along the way to juggle her values of family, love, personal fulfillment and career.
I loved it and so did my daughter. The only disappointment was the quality of the disc which skipped the first time it was played, because it was scratched. Postage to and from Australia takes long enough at the best of times, so I've done my best to repair the damage, but will probably end up sacrificing one scene.
