About this item

Produced for British television, Daniel Deronda was adapted from George Eliot's final novel, written in 1874 (and first filmed in 1921). As was her habit, Eliot laid bare the hypocrisy and venality of Victorian-era "class culture," at the same time admitting that a certain amount of conformity was necessary if one hoped to survive in a world where nonconformity was not only looked down upon but actively suppressed. Essentially, both the novel and the TV presentation are comprised of two separate stories, linked together by the titular Daniel Deronda (Hugh Dancy), a young man of Jewish heritage. In the main narrative, Daniel is attracted to the spoiled, headstrong Gwendolen Harleth (Romola Garai), who is reluctantly poised to enter into a marriage of convenience with the wealthy, snobbish, and intensely anti-Semitic Henleigh Grancourt (Hugh Bonneville). This romantic intrigue is played against the curious relationship between Daniel and the Zionist visionary Mordecai (Daniel Evans), who tirelessly proselytizes in favor of a permanent homeland for the Jewish people. Things come to a head when Daniel finds himself falling in love with Mordecai's sister Mirah (Jodhi May). Originally telecast in three parts on the BBC beginning December 7, 2002, Daniel Deronda was re-edited as a two-parter for the PBS anthology Masterpiece Theatre, where it first aired on March 30, 2003. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide.

This is my very favorite story from all of George Eliot's Collection, BBC has captured excellent actors for this story I beleive this story was the best of all, This was George Eliot's Best Novel ever. Everyone in my family and friends enjoyed this DVD movie. and I have enjoyed the Book very much as well. When you watch this movie you will enjoy it as much as I did, it was worth buying this DVD. I will tresure it as a collection for years to come.

If you are reading this you are a period drama lover. I purchased this BBC video mainly because of the price. Although BBC period pieces are usually good, I was surprised; it was much better than I expected. Hugh Dancy is very good as Daniel Deronda, you really care for this character whose heart is pure. It is almost three stories in one. All well acted. Considering I am surprised the video did not cost more for I have purchased movies not near as good for much more.
