- Immodest dress styles
A 2002 production of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel, Wives and Daughters. Wives and Daughters centers on the story of youthful Molly Gibson, brought up from childhood by her father. When he remarries, a new stepsister enters Molly’s quiet life, the loveable but worldly and troubling Cynthia. The narrative traces the development of the two girls into womanhood within the gossiping and watchful society of Hollingford.
One thought to “Wives and Daughters (1999)”
This movie gives an interesting perspective into relationships – father and daughter, step-sister and sister, step-mother and step-daughter, and relationships within society. My favorite character is Lady Harriett who is noble and takes matters into her own hands when those in their society begin gossiping about Molly and her character.
