4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good version March 6 2009
By Ophelia
Format:DVD
This is a pretty good version of The Mill on the Floss from George Elliott's book. The actors are good enough and the story sad but at the same time very human. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Average adaptation of a great book Feb. 6 2010
By Jane Doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
George Eliot's novel The Mill on the Floss (Penguin Classics) is one of my favorite books, and after seeing the low overall rating for this movie, I was a bit hesitant as to whether or not I wanted to watch it. But since I love the story I figured I would give it a try. I'm not yet sure of whether or not I made the right decision.

All of the actors in the movie were fine. I love James Frain in the Tudors, so I was really excited to see him play my favorite character from the book, Philip Wakem. While he did a good job in the scenes he was in, his character did not make a big impression on me. I had found him much more interesting than either Tom or Stephen, but I guess that whoever made this movie thought differently.

I was a bit concerned before watching this about the length: it's only about an hour and a half, and most good mini-series are three or four hours long. However, the short length was really no problem. They were able to include all of the important scenes without the entire film seeming rushed.

(Major spoilers-only read if you know the story) The filmmakers did not do a great job with the ending. While I absolutely love the novel, I've always felt a little bit uncomfortable with the ending. I think that Eliot just wanted to have a beautiful, tragic ending where both Maggie and Tom died together, but when she came to the end of the book, she couldn't real think of what to do, so she just ended up creating an unlikely, facile scene where they died together. Having the city suddenly flood just didn't seem to tie in too well with the rest of the story. I love tragic stories where the main characters die in the end, so I had nothing wrong with Maggie and Tom dying, I just was not impressed with the manner in which they did so. While the filmmakers did the typical things to make the ending beautiful, something about it seemed kind of corny to me.

The movie overall was entertaining, but it exposed how weak the ending of this wonderful story really is. Usually when I get through watching a mini-series or movie on one of my favorite books, I feel inspired to reread it. However, I felt sort of embarrassed to consider this one of my favorite stories after watching it. So, watch this at your own risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misguided loyalty and fickleness of character April 13 2013
By Noni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Mill on the Floss is a good movie, definitely worth purchasing. It will hold your interest from start to finish. But, as usual, the characters way of thinking and their behavior will have you chewing nails. Again, 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ther's Trouble In't Mill Sept. 16 2012
By filmlover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A longstanding dispute over water rights infects a family with disastrous results. Don't want to give too much away in this review but suffice to say Emily Watson's heartbreaking portrayal of the loving sister and daughter brings one to tears.
Although only movie length, this version of Mill On the Floss tells the story as well as any. Should be in every Classics collection.
