I like period pieces like this movie. It was a dark story of what it was like to be a female of means who was looking for love. A woman could not really trust the intentions of those aristocrats who were in need of money to maintain their large estates and their unproductive lifestyle. Marrying a titled man was not necessarily a good thing for many of the young women. It was also a story of what it was like to be an independent unmarried woman who kept a broke aristocratic lover or who strove to find employment and stay above scandal. Women paid the price no matter if they married or if they didn't. I liked the movie but I didn't like the skipping that occurred in the second chapter. I had the closed captioning on to try to ascertain what might be the gist of the conversation in the scenes since there was a lot of skipping of the DVD. Thankfully, it didn't skip again in the rest of the chapters. The cast of characters were very realistic for the time period.
