Description
Set in the rural community of Hayslope at the dawn of the 19th century, this 1992 adaptation of the George Eliot novel centers around beautiful dairymaid Hetty Sorrel (Patsy Kensit). Her admirers include carpenter Adam Bede (Iain Glen), whose love is not reciprocated. Hetty prefers to dally with Captain Arthur Donnithorne (James Wilby), the heir to the county's big estate who is at home convalescing from an injury. Adam is also fond of Hetty's cousin Dinah Morris (Susannah Harker), a fervent Methodist preacher. Yet when Adam finds out that Arthur has been seeing Hetty he fights with him, convincing Arthur to break off the affair. Adam means to marry Hetty, but before the wedding she leaves town—carrying Arthur's child.

"A solid yarn that's beautifully filmed."—Boston Globe

"[As Reverend Irwine] Robert Stephens (The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes) has fun with his sly line readings. He's a wonder here."—DVD Talk
