Two hours is too short to convey the depth of the novel, but the highly talented cast is able to capture their characters with a word or a look. The standout is James Wilby as the young squire, a man who sins not because he is generally a bad person, but because fate conspires to give him the opportunity, and as always, he trusts in his luck to evade the consequences.

I was delighted with this BBC/WGBH adaptation of the poignant George Eliot novel. An overlooked nugget of decent quality. Patsy Kensit (Hetty) and Susannah Harker (Dinah) were captivatingly beautiful.

(Hetty puts a flower given to her by Adam in her hair) Adam Bede: "...Seems to me as a woman's face doesn't want flowers. It's almost like a flower itself. I'm sure yours is."
