The Pillars of the EarthPauline Cumming
You need to read the book first on this one so that you get a clearer picture of the story line as it is quite involved with so many characters from so many different backgrounds. Be warned though that the book is over 1000 pages so not for the faint-hearted!
Never the less the DVD is brilliant and the acting superb especially from Ian McShane, the bad guy in the whole thing. The plot is extremely interwoven so you have to pay close attention to the plot which is why reading the book first is a good idea.
The movie doesn't always stick to the format of the book and the ending is quite different but never the less, an excellent book and movie. Enjoy!
