Best of Elegance of Fashion: Bleak House Review

Back in June of last year, I watched Bleak House for the first time. I had heard good things about it on other blogs, and since it was on Netflix, I watched it. See what I said about it! (Make sure to leave comments in the review).

From my review:
And how's this for my 500th post? This movie was recommended to me by Melody from Regency Delight ~Jane Austen, etc.~ quite a while ago. Finally! I got to watch it on Netflix! I had seen previews of Bleak House on other BBC DVDs, but I didn't know much about Bleak House other than it had something to do about wills. I also saw that there are a number of people on the blogs that really like it. So one day, I saw it was on Netflix and finally gave it a try.

SynopsisThe case Jarndyce and Jarndyce has been in the courts for generations. There are multiple wills that say who will inherit a large fortune, but no one knows who is the rightful heir. Esther Summerson, an orphan raised by a Miss Barnaby, is taken into the care of John Jarndyce, a kind, older man with two wards, Ada Clare and Richard Carstone. Meanwhile, Lady Dedlock, wife of Sir Leicester Dedlock, holds a secret from her husband which has attracted the interest of unscrupulous lawyer, Mr. Tulkinghorn.

 God Bless,
God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet

  1. This is one of my favorite period dramas ever. I've seen it several times and in fact, I'm making one of my best friends watch it with me this month! She keeps asking me to pause so she can ask me questions (she's not really a "period drama" type person).
