HASH(0xa66d44ec) out of 5 stars My Brother Jonathan July 21 2013

I saw this on TV when I was a teenager and I loved it then, it was the first production with DDL that I had seen and I thought he was fabulous, I also really liked Benedict Taylor and Barbara Kellermann - watching this again was truly lovely and I almost like DDL's performance in this better than some of his later work. There are small sections where his acting is a bit forced, but on the whole, it's really good.

With hindsight, I find the plot a bit melodramatic, but it is very much a 19th Century story, so you have to see it in the context of the period.

I'm very glad to have this DVD in my collection anyway - great to find it too, I'd been looking for it for ages...

HASH(0xa66d4714) out of 5 stars Good Story and Fine Performances Jan. 19 2015
By Martin Brynildsen - Published on
This looked like an interesting piece of work, and I rented it from our public library.
It's a wonderful story, once we catch up to its first scene. The parents are rather comic characters, and a bit distracting. Overall, this is a wonderful drama, especially through the first four episodes. The fifth brings everything to an all but too hasty and tragic conclusion. Day-Lewis, Barbara Kellermann, and the other leads are excellent, and I would award this a good four and one-half stars.

Not the most memorable of BBC productions, but being a BBC production, it doesn't disappoint, either

HASH(0xa66d4edc) out of 5 stars Incredible performance, as usual July 19 2013

Daniel Day-Lewis gives a wonderfully subtle performance in this beautifully done movie. I rated it with 4 stars only because the ending is just such a surprise and shock. That ending was impossible to love. You just are not prepared for it.
