So dignified, even in distress...
on March 4, 2016
I'm an anglophile so I like almost all British shows and actors. Maybe because they have such a long dramatic history and so many brilliant poets and writers, the actors are as talented. It's almost an innate quality that actors of different cultures have to study hard to achieve.
It all comes so naturally to English actors, I'm always amazed. As I love mostly comedy, I can say that this show portrays extremely well the acute struggle to maintain one's heritage and traditions, almost at any cost. Never submitting to the reality of being a mere mortal, but someone always important even when unfortunately becoming destitute. And while climbing back with determination each rang of the wealthy social ladder, the main character finds herself in many hilarious situations that are of course, most of the time beneath her. Worth watching, more than once.
