The Glass Virgin [1995]

Good as all catherine cooksons are.

Catherine cookson is such a wonderful writer, and this was interpreted exactly as i had imagined it when i read the book, which is not a common occurence.

Yet again another excellent catherine cookson family epic drama committed to film for you to enjoythis was excellent value with a goog service if you don’t mind waiting for arrival it’s free.

Dvd arrived promptly and well packaged. I bought this because i had seen it previously at a friends and wanted to watch it again so i know i will enjoy it again and again.

I enjoyed ‘the glass virgin’ very much. And was very happy to see a young brendan coyle starring.

I cannot give it a high star because three quarters way through i had a blank patchwhy i do not know. I managed to watch the ending though.

I love catherine cookson movies, and this one is rather good, very good acting and storyline.

Up their with all of cookson’s stories. Great acting from nigel havers. Spoil rich girl falls from grace, learns to live, cope in the real world and finds love to boot.

Bought as a gift, mum loved it.

It’s a dvd, it either works or doesn’t.

It is not many films that can make all my senses pay full attention and take my whole body & soul into this film where the characters and stories are. I watched it twice and then ordered it from amazon to go with a collection of my greats to keep and watch forever. Emily mortimer and brendon coyle made the film for me. But every character was great . The was suspense and intrigue and no violence. Its a girlie film for sure and one to be cherished in my lifetime.

“the glass virgin” is a historical drama – a mini-collection in 3 elements – that is established in the north of england in the 1860s (largely in the countryside, but occasionally in a smaller city). It was revealed on british tv (itv) in 1995 and produced on dvd in 2003 and 2007. In this article is some essential data about it:** directed by sarah hellings** screenplay created by alan seymour** based mostly on a book by catherine cookson (1906-1998)** run time: three x 49 minutes = 147 minutesthe forged includes the next:** brendan coyle as manuel mendoza** emily mortimer as annabella lagrange – age 17-18** nigel havers as edmund lagrange – annabella’s father** christine kavanagh as rosina lagrange – annabella’s mother** david whitaker as mr skillen** su elliot as mrs skillen** ralph watson as mr fairbairn** catherine terris as mrs fairbairn** crispin redman as george boston** samantha glenn as annabella lagrange – age ten** frederick treves as good uncle james** venetia barrett as terrific aunt emmacatherine cookson was a british author who wrote pretty much a person hundred books. Some men and women referred to as them romances, but she mentioned they were historical novels, since the (fictional) story-line was often placed in a historical context. Numerous of her publications had been greatest-sellers. She has offered much more than a hundred million copies. Several of her textbooks have been tailored for television. The book on which this motion picture is centered, the glass virgin, was first posted in 1969. I do not would like to spoil the viewing for any one. For that reason i am not heading to reveal much too substantially about what comes about in this film.

Acquired as a gift but i have seen it just before.

I noticed this when it was 1st unveiled yrs ago and ‘fell in love’ with brendan coyle. He is wonderful, as are all the figures, notably nigel havers. I have viewed it numerous situations and often see one thing new that i skipped the times before. Living in south africa, we get fed a large amount of american junk on our television which is why i generally take pleasure in superb british drama. The brits positive know how to make interval dramas. I love the fact that british-designed films use amazing character actors.

Great catherine cookson dvd, as very good as e book.

Superior support great high quality dvds generally nice to observe the dvd following examining the guide this 1 even much better with nigel havers in it.

    1. A bastard child is brought up to be a lady. When the truth about her parentage comes to light. She takes to the road with her guardian/come mentor. They roam the countryside taking on menial jobs and eventually get married. As a young child she has a life of bliss, as a young lady she learns what hardship is and at one point even attempts suicide. . An happy-ever-after story.

    1. I’ve read a few of catherine cookson’s historical novels, and usually found them a bit too full of gritty reality, sometimes with rather depressing endings. So i wasn’t too sure what to expect of this film – and, on the whole, was pleasantly surprised. Annabella, a ten-year-old child of luxurious circumstances, doesn’t understand that her beloved father is a promiscuous, violent spendthrift. The first part of the film shows her background, and uncovers a few family secrets. Her naive innocence gets some of the servants into trouble. Then the plot leaps forward seven years, and annabella’s life takes on a very different form as she learns the truth about her past, and as her father is threatened with bankruptcy. We thought it was very well done. I was particularly impressed with the young annabella, and also nigel havers as her unpleasant (but attractive) father. I could have done without one violent boxing scene – i averted my eyes – but other than that, it was, on the whole, an enjoyable film. Quite long at two and a half hours, and i was relieved that the ending was much more satisfactory than i had feared.
