As a BBC lover, I was surprised how "flat" this program was. I watched ½ of it and gave up.

With its odd pacing, this biopic is best for fans of English literature rather than a general audience. There is absolutely stunning scenery and a compelling revelation of the tragic and brief lives of the three sisters, focusing on the limitations of living as women in 19th century England, and the complications of having a distraught and destructive brother.

If you enjoy quibbling, steady scenes switches with little apparent plot you will enjoy this movie. Otherwise it's a no go

Made for people who think the Bronte family was trying out for a "reality TV" show. Probably the worst version of their lives I have ever seen or read.

Any BBC + Masterpiece Theatre production is excellent, as was this 2 hour series about the Bronte family. I thought the cast did an excellent job of capturing sweet Anne, fiery Emily, and authoritative Charlotte. But we can't just use one word to describe them, and this film excels at adding depth and breadth to the siblings, especially troubled Branwell.

A fine cast explores the lives of the Bronte sisters and their brother Bramwell. If you ever wondered how Emily came up with the plot for "Wuthering Heights", or why Bramwell never fulfilled his early promise as a writer, or how Charlotte's novel "Jane Eyre" became world-famous... here are your answers.
