He loves her. She loves him.
Louis and Emily get married and live very happily together in London, with her sister living with them as well.
Emily is a bit headstrong and stubborn and let's be honest, Louis's jealousy is easily aroused.
He becomes convinced she is pursuing the affections of another man by being too friendly with him. He asks her to stop.
She does not on principle of course.
So unfolds this week's period drama spotlight:
He Knew He Was Right,
written by Anthony Trollope in 1869.
What I like about Trollope's work is that the main tale is usually surrounded by a number of other, very enjoyable, some quite funny, and for me, even preferable subplots, as is the case with this story.
Here are a few pics of the other characters in this drama:
Emily's sister and her sister's tutor Hugh Stanbury, a friend of Louis.
A new Vicar...and a pair of rivals in the form of sisters.
Do you recognize the vicar???
It's the Doctor!...heehee
Yeahh, so this picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post, I just wanted an excuse to post it on here. Slick, I know.
If you haven't seen this movie, well I think you must. If you want to call yourself a true period drama aficionado, it's a requirement.
But it has tons of drama, heartbreak, anger, love, frustration, more love-despite obstacles, crazy-looney tunes-kind of love, and redemption for some and loss for others.
So do check it out below, and please let me know what you think and if you've seen it :)) (You can rent it on Amazon.com and Netflix)
