Perfectly captures Trollope's humor and tone. Wonderful performances.

Based on two of Trollope's Barsetshire Novels - acting is perfection.

Fantastic film in the grand old British style. The actor interpreting the role of Slope is great as well as the actress playing the role of Mrs Proudy.

A tempest plot among clergymen in a village - - but quite interesting, nice turns in the sotry, excellent acting. Maybe a simplified happy ending, but the path to it is high quality.

A young Alan Rickman in the role that prepared him for Severus Snape is now featured on the cover of this DVD but doesn't even get co-star billing in the credits (although he smarmily brings to life every scene he is in). Susan Hampshire sparkles in one of her last "Masterpiece Theatre" roles as a crippled vamp with a heart of... well, maybe 14K alloy. Donald Pleasance, fresh from his role as the near-sighted forger in "The Great Escape", brings along the charm, stubbornness, and thick glasses in his starring role as Mr. Harding. And if you are a Trollope fan, rest assured - the plot is intact, and Mrs. Proudie is as unlovably autocratic as she should be (although I always imagined her with a Wagerian shape).
