Tues 5 Sep, Stamford Theatre film
A special screening of the BBC film starring Emily Watson and Cheryl Campbell
Driven by passion, intelligence and imagination, Maggie Tulliver is a rare free spirit in the convention-bound world of Victorian rural society. Despite the fierce love between her and her stolid brother Tom, Maggie turns to others for the companionship she craves.
Denied the friendship of Philip Wakem, the son of her father’s implacable enemy, she is drawn irresistibly to the handsome Stephen Guest. Torn between love and devotion to her family, she is rejected by Tom and only an act of supreme courage can effect a final but tragic reconciliation.
