I'm back from a five day vacation. I'll make a post about that later. First a review.
My family and I recently watched this mini-serie again. And YES, YES, it's wonderful. It's my favourite mini-serie all time. We watched it for the third time. You absolutely fall in love with this version. There is another version, the 1987, but I don't like it, however I never have seen it, only the trailer. I stick with the 2008 version.
The story is about Amy Dorrit, who spends her days earning money for her family and looking after her father, who is a long term inmate of Marshalsea debtor's prison in London. Amy and her family's world is transformed when she meets the son of Mrs. Clennam, she works for her, Arthur Clennam.
