  6. ok!!! so it worked and i am hooked. there are so many different emotions that are going through my many character much sorrow yet joy yet optimism...

    i could go on but i won't bore you! I LOVE IT :)

  7. oh yeah...i am torn...i love angel because i feel sorry for him because all that he desires is acceptance and i love mr claire because of his innocence, romanticism, and true love

  8. What are your opinions on casting?

    I think the casting for Alec was great- when I read the book I pictured him a bit older and less attractive making him seem more creepy, but in the film Alec came off as much more ...dangerous... more of a real threat to the innocence of Tess.

    A lot of people also seem to think Angel Clare was cast too young, but personally I expected him to be younger, because he was traveling with his brothers when he was rather young, and he would be a college bound age when he was at Mr. Crick's farm (as his dad did not put him through Cambridge)

  9. Merci x 100000000!
    I missed Tess on Sunday so i'm thrilled that i can view it online. Time to go watch the video! :)
