This is based on the true story of the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of a British aristocrat that plays out like a Jane Austin novel. The emotions are restrained, as issues of class, society, wealth and love are played out with a racial twist. That being said, it’s beautifully mounted like the classic Masterpiece Theatre. The cast is uniformly strong and the look is rich and lovely. Some of the writing is sharp, while the plot points walk a predictable path. It’s completely involving, but the drama does occasionally drag the pace a bit. Still, it’s ideal for those who appreciate tasteful, beautifully-crafted period films.
