You HAVE to head over to the Masterpiece website and watch this – the entire first season of this miniseries is available to watch for free right now! You have until February 22nd to watch it, but I would get started now. It is SO good. You can also get it on Netflix or buy it on amazon.com for only $16.99! I found it at Costco for $14.99 so if you have one near you it’s the best price I’ve seen. :)
Okay, I have to share some images… because I really need to convince you it’s AWESOME and you should go watch it. :)
These are the three sisters. I love Sybil (left), she’s so cool! Modern and interested in women’s rights… but not overly so. I mean, she’s not ready to go chain herself to some building thankfully. But she’s really sweet and a great character. Edith (right) and Mary (middle) are forever at odds, to the point of me gasping at what they do to each other. But you can’t help but be intensely interested in their plights and … you can hardly blame them. If I had had as much pressure to find a husband as they have I’d probably be a little nuts, too.
This is their mother. She’s so kind and diplomatic with everyone. Except for the whole “You must marry soon” thing she’s doing to her daughters she’s awesome.
This is a closeup of Mary, who is the eldest and has the most pressure to marry well – or marry someone (for reasons you will have to watch the movie to find out about). She has the most gorgeous dresses in this movie!
My favorite scene with Sybil. Her “modern” outfit which is truly breathtaking… both because of its beauty and because it is a split skirt! *GASP*
Their grandmother, a very popular actress… and boy is she a formidable character! Certainly not afraid to speak her mind.
Yep, there’s no shortage of drama going on downstairs, either! Both sweet and devious characters, and, of course, love is blooming…
My favorite characters, Anna and Bates… I won’t say anything about them but I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do!
Have I convinced you yet? As a last attempt, here’s a preview video…
