- Persuasion (the 1971 version)
While yes, at times this screams of the 70s, I love Ann Fairbanks depiction of Anne Elliot. She's just the way I imagine Anne actually would be.
There are two versions that I like. There's the 1996 version with Gwenyth Paltrow, and there's the TV mini-series with Romola Garai. Both are excellent renditions. Both have their pros and cons.
- Pride and Prejudice
Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth - enough said
- Bleak House
While Gillian Anderson isn't the main lead in this production, this is worth watching just to see her amazing performance.
- Wives and Daughters
Justine Waddell pulls off a brilliant performance in the role of Molly Gibson.
- North and South
The parson's daughter meets the cotton mill owner. Watch the sparks fly and the love between them develop. Think of this as Lizzy and Darcy meet the Industrial Revolution. As a bonus, the music is hauntingly beautiful.
- Little Women
Louisa May Alcott's book comes to life with this charming adaptation.
- Anne of Green Gables
Relive Anne's hopes and dreams and struggles with this classic rendition.
