I just finished watching Cranford today. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The setting is Cranford, a small town in England which, in the 1840's, has remained untouched by the modern ways of London. The townsfolk are quite proud of this, and make efforts to remain so.

The movie centers around the women of the village, who are quite up-to-date on all their neighbors.

If you like movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, you will like this movie! I laughed and cried through it. I would say more, but I certainly don't want to ruin the plot for you if you haven't already seen it!

I have SOOO been wanting to watch this! Did you see Wives And Daughters? I loved that one, so I know I'll like Cranford...

One more thing for the wishlist! :)

I just finished watching this on Sunday!! Small world!!

The first 2 hours, I was SO confused!! So many story lines all at one time! So much information!!

But, I quickly fell in love with the people of Cranford and found myself wishing for a visit. I pulled out some newly acquired Assam Melody tea (like Matilda recommended in her new tea shop!!!) and finished the rest of the movie Sunday afternoon. I was sad to see it end.

My daughter and I had such a hoot over the cat and lace scene!

Ooh, just about anything with Imelda Staunton in it is probably a good watch.
