I found it rather annoying that the series did not properly address such central topic. But obviously having the adaptation be restricted by time they couldn’t add everything that I would’ve liked. I’ve never read or heard of anything like it. Rupert Evans plays such a good bad guy as Gentleman. I originally planned to watch the first part on one night and the second part on another night, but I just couldn’t stop and stayed up till 2am watching all of it. BBC’s 3 hour adaptation of the novel by Sarah Waters Would recommend it to everyone!

Annabelle is the wise-beyond-her-years newcomer to an exclusive Catholic girls school. Especially since Tipping the Velvet had been done so well by old familiar Andrew Davies. You really feel their desire for one another and yet they cannot act upon it If you think you’ve seen it all then this movie is for you because it will make you realize that there is still a lot to understand about human nature. The acting was stellar. Trio of stories about lesbian couples in three different decades. For those who think the story is just about a lesbian relationship – no, this is only one part.

Antagonisten 26 December Weeks have passed since i watched “Fingersmith”, yet Maud’s eyes still haunt me, and Sue’s words still warm my heart “You pearl, you pearl, you pearl”, she said. I love Sarah Waters’s Fingersmith, and was worried about the TV adaptation as I’d been disappointed by the BBC’s version of Tipping the Velvet which although beautiful to look at was let down by Keeley Hawes not being able to sing, and Rachael Stirling not being able to act.

I hope Rachael Stirling was watching: Trio of stories about lesbian couples in three different decades. Goofs The roses Kitty gives out in her act are obviously artificial.

The plot twists and turns and I wasn’t sure I could be led to care about characters able to hurt and use each other in this way Sally Hawkins, Elaine Cassidy, Rupert Evans, Imelda Staunton, and many more that i can’t name all, brought light and darkness to their characters.


Heligena 12 April They are very unusual in a period drama. No sympathy whatsoever from that man! I’ve fallen in love with the story, the setting, and the characters; the acting is superb, like nothing I’ve seen before. Enter Mr Gentlement, a charming, good-looking thief with a heart as bad as any. The other main theme is the betrayal of the person you love. The acting was stellar. Kitty Butler 3 episodes, Diana Lethaby 2 episodes, Jodhi May Even the direction from the fairly unknown Aisling Walsh used contrasting yet beautiful shades of blue for Briar and brown for London.

Two attractive young lesbians, Maggie and Kim, meet in Vancouver, develop a passionate romance, and move in together.

When I started watching this series I was impressed by the accuracy of its scenery, costumes and the realistic acting. For me that’s what makes this story so unique and intriguing. Best Lesbian Themed without order. I’m not going to bother with typing out a synopsis or a summary of the plot, I don’t want to spoil anything as this is a story that you really need to experience for yourself.

Sally Hawkins acting her heart out as Sue Trinder, and Elaine Cassidy, a slow burner, who by the end of the story was incandescent as Maud Lilley.

I felt I had to read it in order to appreciate the art in the writing behind the movie. So while i’m not a huge fan of the genre, i can usually be persuaded to watch something lite this if it’s British and with decent actors. Nan Astley 3 episodes, Keeley Hawes I have not read the book, nor have I read any of Sarah Waters’ books or watched any of her other films, but after seeing this movie, I definitely plan to.

Having read the book prior to watching this adaptation you would think that it would have lost some of its thrill.


There is truly something about Ms. Beautiful to watch thanks to direction, settings and costumery. Imelda Staunton played the conniving Mrs.

Sarah Waters is pure genius! I certainly hope so. I had heard that there would be a lesbian love story, but not much more.

Add the first question. The ones cast for this production, however, were not at all disappointing – in fact, after I got used to Rachael Stirling as Nan, I think Nina Gold did a damn fine job in the casting department. It had me on the edge of my seat throughout with lots of wonderful stomach-trembling moments.

I think it was so cruel that he made a bet with Sue to give her lots of money if he marries Maud Lilly and send her off to a mental asylum like her mother.

Everyone else in the cast were perfect! The lesbian subplot was just icing on the cake!

Tipping the Velvet

I am now a Sarah Waters and Elaine Cassidy fan!! Nina’s Heavenly Delights At this point I must emphasize that this series is good, and it definitely captured me throughout it flngersmith thus worth watching.

Set in the ‘s, tells the lesbian love affair between male impersonator music hall star Kitty Butler and Nan Astley. The chemistry between Sally Hawkins and Elaine Cassidy was incredible. However as much praise must be given to Ransley the script writer.

Of course Imelda Staunton was amazing as usual, she is unmistakably a national treasure and the supporting cast were all of a high standard. It’s still unclear when BBC-America can broadcast this film. Don’t let the fact that it’s set in a Victorian period scare you away.
