Summary
  • Restoration : In 17th century Britain, a young man seduced by the wealth and indolence of the Restoration court finds redemption of sorts through the love of a woman
  • An ideal husband : A politician's spotless reputation is threatened by a dark secret from his past
  • Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown : After her husband Prince Albert dies, Queen Victoria becomes depressed and introverted. Her servant, simple Scottish Highlander John Brown, makes her enjoy life again through his kindness and friendship with her. However, their relationship causes a scandal that rocks the British Isles
  • Tom & Viv : A passionately rendered story about writer T.S. Eliot's turbulent relationship with his first wife, Vivienne
  • Becoming Jane : The year is 1795 and the feisty 20-year-old Jane Austen is an emerging writer who already sees a world beyond class and commerce, beyond pride and prejudice, and dreams of doing what was nearly unthinkable - marrying for love. Naturally, her parents are searching for a wealthy, well-appointed husband to assure their daughter's future social standing. As a prospective match for Jane, her parents are eyeing Mr. Wisley. He is the nephew to the very formidable, not to mention very rich, local aristocrat Lady Gresham. But when Jane meets the roguish and decidedly non-aristocratic Tom Lefroy, sparks soon fly along with the sharp repartee. His intellect and arrogance raise her ire, only to knock her head over heels. Now, the couple, whose flirtation flies in the face of the sense and sensibility of the age, is faced with a terrible dilemma. If they attempt to marry, they will risk everything that matters - family, friends and fortune
  • Brideshead revisited : Epic story of three decades of the life of a young man, who meets the Marchmain family and becomes wrapped up in their lifestyle
  • Charlotte Bronte's : Jane Eyre, a mistreated orphan, learns to survive by relying on her independence and intelligence
