Daniel Deronda 2002

 

This always seems to be listed in the “the top” drama films on period drama.  I loved it and own it.  I can recommend a rental, at the least. There were any trailers made at the time, but a fan made one that seems to impart the feeling of the film.

The illegitimate son of a wealthy British aristocrat, Daniel Deronda harbors a secretive past and a ready supply of cash. But when he meets Gwendolyn, a beautiful woman in desperate need of money, things get even more complicated.
