George Eliot Collection
The George Eliot Collection includes onscreen adaptations of Eliot´s most famous novels. Eliot created literary masterpieces that detailed ordinary lives during the Victorian era with keen political acumen, unheard of for a woman writer in her day. Now George Eliot´s novels come to life in these five critically acclaimed BBC production.
In the provincial town of Middlemarch, Dorothea Brooke develops an instant connection with a man that she meets on her honeymoon, while Doctor Lydgate falls in love with a troubled and privileged woman. As Dorothea and Lydgate are drawn into the lives and intrigues of Middlemarch, the seeds are sown for an epic tale of passion and disillusionment.
The Mill on the Floss:
Tom and Maggie Tulliver are children of the honest but obstinate owner of the Dorlcote Mill. Maggie´s free spirit leads to a relationship with the son of her father´s rival, which her prosaic brother orders her to abandon. Maggie is torn between the indelible ties of family, the strict morals of her time, and the romantic yearnings of her heart, and her attempts to pursue her blighted dreams shock the stifling society in which she lives.
Adam Bede is a hard-working carpenter, with his heart set on marrying his sweet-heart, the pretty dairymaid Hetty Sorrel. Unfortunately, Hetty´s affections are captured by the local squire, Arthur Donnithorne. Headstrong but foolish, Hetty soon finds herself accused of murder. Beneath the tranquil surface of George Eliot´s tale, passions run deep and the bitter gall of betrayal is all too prevalent.

One day, upon arriving home, he discovers a foundling child asleep on the hearth. Could this young girl be the redemption to love and happiness that Silas has been looking for?
