Wives and Daughters tells the story of Molly Gibson, a motherless girl on the verge of womanhood, finding out about life, love and loss for the first time.

This is a superbly crafted drama, which really has it all! The acting is faultless, while the length of the film allows the plot to develop naturally. The romance and drama are subtle, yet engaging, making it an excellent film for men and women alike, and very re-watchable. Highly recommended!
