North And South

BBC television adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's passionate love story, set across the social divides in the changing world of Victorian industrial society. Margaret Hale (Daniella Denby-Ashe) is a southerner from a country vicarage newly settled in the industrial northern town of Milton. In the shock of her move, she misjudges charismatic cotton mill-owner John Thornton (Richard Armitage) , whose strength of purpose and passion are a match for her own pride and wilfulness.

When the workers of Milton call a strike, Margaret takes their side, and the two are brought into deeper conflict. As events spiral out of control, Margaret - to her surprise - finds herself falling in love with Thornton.

Review:

An intelligent, moving, thought-provoking and visually striking adaptation

The Times

This is Pride and Prejudice with a social conscience, a collision between Northern no-nonsense and delicate Southern sensibilities.

A gem of a story

I am a fan of Hobbit, so I looked for more movies with Richard Artimatege (Prince dwarf). I found North and South and ended up watching it several times over. It is so popular with my friends and family, it is on a rotation schedule - so that everyone can get their turn watching/re-watching it. It has a deep story about society, economy, and human values. I highly recommend it

Good product

This dvd was worth purchasing. A very sad, but heartwarming movie. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted by this movie.

An absolutely superb series

I discovered 'North & South' some years ago when I was scouting for other BBC series on a par with 'Pride & Prejudice', which I think is one of the best romantic comedies @#$ English literature successes ever! North & South exceeded all expectations! It had a sensational response in the UK and everyone to whom I have leant my DVD discs has been reluctant to return them to me. It is wonderful - full of history and human interest, and has a romantic ending that will knock even the most hardened sceptic sideways!! Quite frankly, it is amongst my most prized possessions and I have given it to special friends all over the world. However, it is for reasonably intelligent people - if you don't fit the description, i.e. have no interest in history, the subtleties of human relationships, etc. don't buy it ... it will be wasted on you!
