Unconventional, unflinching, and undeniably engaging, this coming-of-age story is about a provincial young woman who follows her heart--and a beautiful male impersonator--to London. It's also a candid depiction of lesbian love in Victorian England. Andrew Davies adapted Sarah Waters's acclaimed novel, and the result is an unforgettable drama that The Seattle Times
calls "flat-out sublime." Recommended for mature audiences. CC, 178 min. on 1 DVD.
