Cranford


I spent a lovely weekend watching the 7 episodes of the lovely miniseries Cranford. I highly recommend this on to you--especially if you love BBC period dramas such North and South (not the Patrick Swayze one) or any Jane Austen adaptation. Here is my favorite quote from the series:

Men! They're all the same! They know everything about everything save when it is to happen and how it can be stopped. My father was a man; I think I understand the sex.

Oh my, I loved this. My father-in-law had us watch it over Christmas break (note to others: marry someone with a Humanities professor parent) and I completely adored it.

I'll have to look into this...sounds good!

It was sooooo nice to see you in UT. Hopefully I will be up again soon!

This is on my list. Looks perfect--we're finishing up "Little Dorrit," which is lovely.

I think "Cranford" is my favorite movie of all time. I've watched it three times now, so yes, I've invested a serious amount of time in it. (I really do have a life, I promise!)
But I just love the simpleness of it, the power of Judi Dench's acting, the amazing costumes, the ebullient humor. . . . I could go on for a long time.
Anyway, happy to find another fan! :)
