|Thank you Edify Media for this review DVD.|
Things I liked:
~ The acting was good.
~ Good chemistry between Elizabeth and Jack.
~ Good variety of support characters.
~ Clean family film.
~ No bad language, love scenes, or violence.
Things I didn't like:
~ They didn't follow the book at all.
~ Although the actress playing Elizabeth was good, I didn't like changing the main character. The new Elizabeth was too different in my mind.
~ I found that the women working in the coal mine was a completely unrealistic transfer of 21st century women's behavior to early 20th century women.
The bottom line:
Would I recommend it? Yes. It was a film my entire family enjoyed. I enjoyed it, too, after I realized it was a different story.
