Sorry for so many videos! But this one was sort of imparitive to share. Even out of context it is one powerful succession of scenes. I was literally shaking in the end, when Liza-Lu takes Angel’s hand. It’s okay if you don’t know who any of the characters are — this is BBC’s latest adaption of Thomas Hardy’s beloved novel, Tess of the D’ubervilles. Came out in 2008, I think? Still love the 1998 version with Justine Waddell and Oliver Milburn best, though. It’s probably just a purist thing. I can never resist verbatim book to movie adaptions! Anyway, despite my moderate disappointment in BBC’s attempt (nothing compared to their Wuthering Heights scandal mind you), I still find myself haunted with the ending of this raw, exquisite story…most likely because Thomas Hardy wrote a fool-proof tragic ending. Quite brilliant, really.
