I love the early-19th Century look this film has. Right down to the old 1850s white roses (old roses had more petals than modern roses, and most of them were slightly pink).

But, I could understand only about every tenth word. I watched for 2 hours and I couldn't understand about 9 out of 10 words.

 

I searched for closed captions, but apparently they didn't have those in the 1850s.

 

We need a lengthy summary of this film so old guys like me can understand what is going on in every scene.

Lol, I find closed captioning very useful in movies like this. Odd that it doesn't have any. Trying to lip read is next best, lol.

 

One of my little pet peeves is the wrong types of roses in period movies. Hybrid teas weren't introduced until the 1860's and yet are often seen in movies set prior to that.
