      Audience Member Another great film based on a Catherine Cookson's novel. This one has a bit more action on the side than the other ones, and the main characters had quite complicated love lives with no-one really enjoying a happy ending. This was somewhat of a let-down for me when compared to the other Catherine Cookson novel masterpieces. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Fast paced and good direction. A little seen tv movie that's pretty rewarding. Unlike the rest of Cookson's novels, this has a thriller aspect hidden in the love story....and is all the better for it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A complex Period drama based on smuggled gems creating a priveleged life for those involved but itall comes out in the open with marraiage and discovery of insanity, romance and murder. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Very important movie to see in order to address the poor-me attitudes that keeps people from being agents of change. Unfortunately, this business motivational type movie does not deal with how to view negative situations in lesson-giving formats very well and tends to be similar to the christian type of morality that supports capitalistic enterprise. If one is victimized, this movie then interprets the victim's life as one's own fault rather than recognize that social conditions and training also influences one's choices in the moment. This then re-victimizes an individual, attacking the self-esteem of an individual that further silences agency. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member After "What the bleep do we know" this is THE MOVIE!!!!! You HAVE TO SEE IT!!!!
