Little Dorrit Finale

Well, what did you all think of the final episode of Little Dorrit? I thought it was wonderful. :) If you didn't get a chance to watch it, you can still see it online HERE or buy it on DVD HERE.
A lot of work went into the costumes...I thought they were amazing. My absolute favorite though, I think, was Amy's simple dress and apron:

And then I'm in love with the men's wardrobe as well. Nothing quite so dashing as cravats. :)
Everything from the acting to the cinematography and score is stunning. This production was so well done. I'm a little sad it's over but at least now I can get it on DVD and watch it straight through with out having to wait a week to know what happens next. Even though there is some fun in that. :)


  1. Oh, wasn't it just beautiful?!! I'm not in America, so of course I couldn't see it on PBS, but I watched the finale online a couple of weeks ago. I was bawling my eyes out all through the last half hour or so! Can't wait to get it on DVD. :-D

    And I agree, I thought Claire Foy's costumes were lovely - and Matthew MacFadyen looked dashing, as always! ;-)


  2. Yes yes yes, I loved this movie too! I am so sad it's over. However I was ready for the odd French guy to die, he was really creepy!

    Now I want to read the book :)

  3. I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I haven't been able to watch the last episode yet but I can't wait! Their outfits are so fabulous! I love Amy's dresses the most, they are so simple and feminine yet not so flashy and frilly like Fanny's. Her character is so amazing and she is such a lady even though everybody else says that she is failing. She is a true lady. I'm really going to have to buy this video. :)

  4. The costumes were really good. Particularly the menswear gave me some great ideas. No Spoilers though! I haven't seen the last episode yet, its still waiting on my TIVO!

  5. I watched it online last night and LOVED it. I was glad that the ending didn't dissapoint, since I feel like lots of the Charles Dickens stories do. I did have a few moments of wishing things didn't fly so fast, but it was altogether well done.

    BIGGEST PET PEEVE: Fanny's makeup! I don't know HOW Mrs. General would have let her wear her face like that. And she looked so pretty without it! :(

    The Old Curiosity Shop is on TV next, but my sister and I are ready to use this weekly movie time to watch something else. ;)

  6. Hi just kinda stumbled into your wonderful blog!
    Could I ask a question, do you know what style the mens jackets are in little dorrit, the lower class men, as in the photo you have below the cravat comment.
    I do agree everything I seen of it was stunning!

  7. I'm glad you've all enjoyed Little Dorrit, I hope those of you who haven't finished it have gotten to see the end by now. :) It all comes together rather quickly but I think I got the gist of it. I'm reading the book right now and it explains a lot of things that they weren't able to explain in the film.

    Fee, Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm not absolutely certain of the name for the jackets, I know the one Matthew MacFadyen is wearing on the right is called a "great coat" or "coachman's coat" I think. It's similar to this:

    The other men appear to be wearing frock coats like this:

    I'm quite in love with their styles. I love how worn they look.

  8. Have you seen the Legend of the Seeker? I think the dresses that the Confessor wears are quite pretty! Just wondering if you've seen them? I love your blog and have been following it for quite some time!



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
