Frankly My Dear, I Don't Give A Damn...Again!
Scarlett, the eight-hour mini-series based on Alexandra Ripley s best-selling sequel to Gone With the Wind, takes up precisely where that story left off, and sees Scarlett O Hara off on a journey from Atlanta to Charleston and Savannah, to London, and to her ancestral home of Ballyhara in Ireland.
The motive force behind the story is once again the turbulent romance between Scarlett and Rhett Butler. Separated from Scarlett and seeking a divorce, Rhett is now pursued passionately by his wife, who seeks a reconciliation. Frustrated in her effort and unwilling to win Rhett by telling him she is pregnant with their child, Scarlett leaves for Ireland, where she is caught up in the political upheaval of the day, and to England, where she must stand trial for a murder she did not commit.
In a dramatic climax, Rhett rushes to Scarlett s side, knowing that she needs him and that her life is at stake. Helping to win her acquittal and finally apprised that they have a son, Rhett reunites with Scarlett, conceding that he never stopped loving her.
Scarlett continues what is unarguably the most celebrated story of the American cinema, with all the richness of the original and with an epic sweep that today is seen only in long-form television.

The movie "Scarlett" continues where "Gone with the Wind", left off...sort of. It's a mini series done quite a few years ago. The stars did a good job, but its only my personal opinion, I rather have seen the stars of the original movie do it.
It was good, but didn't seem to have the same magic of the original movie, but lets face it, they didn't have the budget either. Some of the settings in the mini series are BEAUTIFUL. And though I think the length of "Scarlett" could have been shorter, I did like the story and really liked the ending.
For those"Game of Thrones" Sean Bean enthusiasts, though I always thought he was handsome, a gorgeous young Sean portrays an upper class in Ireland. (Spoiler) Don't expect him to be the nice guy.
I'm glad I finally got to see this movie and happy to have bought it.
If you are not sure if this is the same movie you had on VHS because it is called a mini-series event: it is your movie. Just split into 6 (I think it was 6 anyways) episodes. To me, it was better that way because I could watch a couple of episodes at a time instead of watching the whole thing at once.
