Film Friday: BBC’s North & South

I’m a pretty big costume drama fan. There’s something about sitting down and being whisked away to the past. While the past isn’t always peaceful and beautiful as they are portrayed in these productions, it’s nice to step way from reality for a little bit.

For today’s piece I have picked the 2004 BBC version of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North & South; a love story of Margaret Hale, a middle class southerner who is forced to move to the northern town of Milton. Richard Armitage is John Thornton and Daniela Denby-Ashe is Margaret Hale.
