... the same production team that did such a wonderful job on Middlemarch is equally adept here, although the heavy-breathing plot threatens every twenty minutes or so to make us smile in spite of our high-mindedness.

Audience Reviews for Daniel Deronda

Daniel Deronda is a period drama, an elegant production that one may enjoy shamelessly. The female lead is a great character, well-played by beautiful actress in exquisite costuming. The overall atmosphere is well-done, serious without overreaching.

Handsome period piece, a little slow but well produced and acted. Barbara Hershey shows up late in the proceedings to offer a razor sharp portrait of a woman of mystery.
