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.
Many people under 40 may not even remember Bobby Darin, let alone know about his remarkable life story. Beyond the Sea may rectify that problem and stand as a wonderful tribute to an amazing talent who left us all too soon.
