Set in Manchester between 1837 and 1842, Elizabeth Gaskell’s first novel paints a powerful and moving picture of working-class life in Victorian England. It concerns Mary Barton, a mill worker’s daughter eager to rise through the ranks, and her father, who shoots dead the mill owner’s son. This adaptation offers a stirring narrative with real insight into the lives of the Victorian working classes.
