Cranford: For spinsters Deborah Jenkyns, the arbiter of correctness in Cranford, and Matty, her demurring sister, the town is a hub of intrigue. A handsome new doctor, Frank Harrison, has arrived from London, a retired Army captain and his daughters have moved into a house opposite the sisters, and the preparations for Lady Ludlow's garden party are under way. Everyone -- from charming rogue Dr. Marshland to mean Mrs. Jamieson and her lap dog -- talks, and is talked about, behind closed doors. The town also has its secrets, which it slowly reveals.
North & South: A powerful adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's feisty and passionate love story, set across the social divides in the changing world of Victorian industrial society. Margaret Hale is one of literature's most original heroines: a southerner from a country vicarage newly settled in the industrial northern town of Milton. In the shock of her move, she misjudges charismatic cotton mill owner John Thornton, whose strength of purpose and passion are a match for her own pride and wilfulness.
Wives & daughters: A coming of age story, a romance and a comedy of manners, the film focuses on the fortunes of three families -- the Gibsons, the Hamleys and the Cumnors -- in the English village of Hollingford.
