The Mill on the Floss

Susan and I were very moved yesterday watching the BBC production of The Mill on the Floss.

We highly recommend it to you.

It stars Emily Watson as Maggie Tulliver (Hilary & Jackie–a favorite movie) and James Frain (The Tutors–a favorite TV series) as Philip Wakem.

Here’s a short clip:

And here’s a photograph of a mill near where we live:

  1. It looks beautiful, such fine actors. I love these period pieces.I kept starting to read this book last year, and I just couldn’t keep going, not for any failing in Eliot’s masterpiece, but in my own shortcomings for finishing novels.


  2. I have joined your blog mainly for the photos, that I did like a lot, but it just happens that I read The Mill on the Floss – some years ago. It is a beautiful book, subtle emotions all the time around, you can feel the souls, the ambience, the constrains of life, on our own flesh. I have to see the movie. Thanks.
