I've got these two on my list of period dramas to watch.
Amazing Grace is actually something that my sister has owned for a while; she watched it and said that it was really good. When it came out in the theaters, I wanted to see it, but never got the chance (I rarely get to the movie theaters). I came upon the trailer recently and I showed it to my mom. We both want to see it now. Romola Garai, who was Emma Woodhouse in the most recent adaptation of Emma, is in it. It looks really good, and I can't wait to watch it!

When my mom and I went to Borders, we were looking at the DVDs. We were looking for some bargin DVD's, but couldn't find any. Then I saw a wall that featured bargin DVD's so we went to look at it. I noticed The Buccaneers on this wall for about $15. My mom and I had both heard of it, so for $15, we bought it. I don't know much about the plot, other than it's about marriage. The costumes make use of the bustle, which should be interesting. Carla Gugino from Night at the Museum and Greg Wise from Sense and Sensibility are both in this miniseries.
I also have yet to finish Lark Rise to Candleford: Series 3. Hopefully soon, though! I have two more episodes to watch, then I'll review that. Then to wait for Series 4... the last series in LRTC :'(
I've also been working on my sewing! I know I haven't updated in the longest time about my sewing, but I have been working on it. Right now, I'm working on two projects that go together: once they're done, I'll do a post on both of them.
