      Is the embroidered pillow a bag of grass?

      Mrs Gaskell is an interesting person. There are many ideas, very deep, but after showing the helplessness of half reality, they always rush to the romantic HAPPY ENDING without turning back. In the south and the north, there are tensions between labor and capital, misunderstandings and prejudices that turn sharply at the end, while Splendid Beauty is Cinderella, who was originally going to be black to the end, inexplicably washed all the way in the last 30 minutes and became quasi-white...

      Is Splendid Beauty Really Splendid?

      After watching several TV miniseries from the BBC. I couldn't help but start thinking about saying something. "Pride and Prejudice" has too many comments, and the images of Elizabeth and Darcy are deeply rooted in people's hearts because they are too charming. "Fingersmith Love Picking" is a lesbian cheating story, not a genre film all the way. Let's talk about the two miniseries "South and North" and "Beautiful Lady".
           When I started watching "South and North", I couldn't accept...

      Is Ordinaryness a Virtue?

      The reason why I haven't been interested in this film is mainly because the heroine Molly's face that looks really old and not good-looking in the poster and the plot introduction. As a result, from the very beginning, the little girl was fascinated by it. She looks so good, she's really a doll. Then, when the grown-up heroine appeared, she was even more pleasantly surprised. She looked so pure and clean. She was at least ten years younger than the plot introduction, and she was more than...

      "Something to talk about" is more important than beauty?

      Molly is so perfect, youthful and beautiful, kind and loyal, ancient and warm-hearted, dare to speak out... If you have to talk about shortcomings, it is only reserved. I'm probably too dark in my heart. When I see such a heroine, I immediately feel an illusion, an illusion, she must have a very dark side that people can imagine, just like Maud in "Fingersmith Love". (Suddenly remembered that line from Bei Dao - tell you, world, I - don't - believe!) But Molly is so perfect, so pure, so in...

      Ascetic Colors in British Literature

         Since junior high school, I have read a lot of British classical and modern novels, romantic and suspenseful. The BBC's movies and TV adaptations of classics are also searched as much as possible. In the end, from the beginning of desire, to obsession, to now withdrawing from the sidelines, the attitude towards this kind of British style became more and more indifferent.
         So, I began to calmly analyze and summarize, and found that these widely admired novels and TV. The root cause...

      My heart is burning. What a good girl the heroine is, the heroine, you are blinded by a few eyes, but you liked that cheesy stepmother and daughter first and got engaged, so why is it that the heroine still doesn't give up, why is it? It's so hard for outsiders to see it ah...

      Little Jasmine is a little stupid, she can only feel sad for a big basket of secrets, and her sister is not bad, but she loves herself more, Chunhua's lady Harry Ye is the cutest! This ending is still a bit irritating. The male protagonist of Yan control is really manual goodbye. Dad is a good man. Unfortunately, the author died before he finished...

    Evaluation action

    Basically, the reviews say that this is an adaptation that is quite faithful to the original book, but the screenwriter Andrew Davies made some moves at the end. How to say it? W&D is actually the posthumous work of Elizabeth Gaskell. She died before she could finish it. The novel ends with Molly standing silently by the window and watching Roger leave. I think most people should not be able to end this way. Accepted, so Andrew Davies...
