Mobil Masterpiece Theatre: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall




Mobil Masterpiece Theatre: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
 1997 | WGBH-TV, Boston, Massachusetts, BBC, London, England

Adapted by David Nokes and Janet Barron from Anne Bronte’s 1848 novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall presents an exquisite and moving drama about a woman attempting to free herself and her small son from an abusive marriage. The production stars Tara Fitzgerald as Helen Graham (the “tenant” of the title), with Rupert Graves as her dissolute spouse, Arthur Huntington, and Toby Stephens as Gilbert Markham, the young Yorkshire farmer who falls hopelessly in love with Helen. Their superb acting is made more magical by the moving camera of director Mike Barker and the lavish locations and settings provided by producer Suzan Harrison, under the inspired leadership of executive producers Kevin Loader for the BBC and Rebecca Eaton for WGBH. With The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, the BBC and Mobil Masterpiece Theatre continue to provide audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with the very highest quality in television drama. For so doing, a Peabody Award.
