Description
Charles Dickens's dark treatise on capitalism without a conscience is brought to vivid life in this BBC production from 1994. In the grim northern manufacturing community of Coketown, local MP and schoolmaster Thomas Gradgrind (Bob Peck) raises his children, Louisa (Beatie Edney) and Tom (Christien Anholt), in a strict utilitarian fashion, stressing reason and fact while dismissing imagination and emotion. Under his influence Louisa grows cold, while Tom turns to a secret life of drinking and gambling. As Louisa faces a life without love and Tom's fate begins to turn even darker, Gradgrind must confront the imperfections in his philosophy of rational self-interest.
