This movie had it all: intrigue, mystery, drama, classism, good acting, etc. I'm a huge fan of Gillian Anderson and she did not disappoint me. Interesting to see that transition from X-Files to a Charles Dickens classic. All the characters were spot on. I highly recommend this film to those who are fond of classic literature brought to life. This one ranks high on my list along with Jane Eyre directed by Susanna White.
I am a BIG fan of Charles Dickens and Bleak House is one of my favorite stories. The DVD I purchased was an excellent portrayal (I think) of Dickens Novel. The mega book stores (won't mention any names)sell DVDs but they are very expensive and was able to purchase thru E-Bay at a more reasonable price. I am very satisfied and pleased with the purchase and will continue to purchase DVDs this way.
Bleak House is an incredible drama. This story is complex and involves many generations. If you have a distaste for the legal profession of our day, this will not help your cause. LOL. But I think it will give us all an entree into the society of yesteryear and how much we have changed....thankfully. I think the most important thing I liked about this movie is the intrigue. You absolutely HAVE to pay attention to everything you see & hear. It brings you full circle to the end & you will love it! I didn't think I would find another movie this involved since "The Murder Room", by PD James. Another thriller you would love.
This is a very well done movie on a classic Dickens. Usually, if you are a Jane Austen fan, you will also enjoy these classics as well. Unlike most of the new hollywood trash we have today, these movies actually tell a combination of stories within one movie that leaves you wanting more. Do not be in a hurry, this may not be a "one night" sit down movie as it also is a several part series. Fine job acting and a well placed cast will make this a favorite to anyone who loves these slow moving 1800's era flicks that are full of suspense and as always romance. If you like this, check out my favorite Dickens; Our Mutual Friend.
Blleak House is a most rivoting and somewhat suspenseful movie. Charles Dickens, yet again, does not fail us in his depiction of the lifestyles of the different classes. This movie is a must see.
