Streaming on Amazon Prime: Dr. Thorne

Posted on May 28, 2016 at 7:59 am

From Anthony Trollope and “Downton Abbey’s” Julian Fellowes, “Dr. Thorne” is the story of a poor girl born out of wedlock who loves and is loved by the son of the local landed gentry. He is under pressure from his family to marry money, as the estate has been heavily borrowed against. There are glorious costumes and settings and Trollope’s witty and generous take on the class, money, and political conflicts of the era. I was completely captivated by it, especially by the lovely Stephanie Martini in the lead role as Mary Thorne and Tom Hollander as the title character, her uncle and guardian.
