Desperate Romantics (2009)

In BBC, period drama, Recommendation, romantic, series on 01/07/2011 at 6:15 pm

A six part BBC miniseries about four rebellious romantic painters whose efforts to incite an art revolution certainly aren’t very fruitful in the beginning. There’s also much literal desperate romanticism, laudanum addiction, beautiful female models with thick and wavy red hair and of course, it couldn’t be any good without some serious class prejudice and old-fashioned sexism. It’s a very entertaining, quite brilliantly acted (Rafe Spall, Aidan Turner, Tom Hollander) and sexy period drama series. Recommended.
