It's BBC produced mini-series event on Lifetime, A & E, and The History Channel. Although we are nearing the end you can watch online in connection with your cable carrier.
The sets and costumes are absolutely GORGEOUS!
The casting divine.You PBS lovers will recognize Lily James who portrayed Rose on Downton Abbey (and the lead in the recent adaptation of Cinderella).
And James Norton who stars as the whiskey swigging vicar in Grantchester.
If you read War and Peace in high school or college the story will come flooding back to you but if you didn't don't worry.
This is basically a love triangle set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic wars in czarist Russia (hence the magnificent costumes).
It's a near perfect historical fiction saga full of unrequited love,betrayal,downright youthful stupidity and the redemptive power of forgiveness. If you are not a football fan this might be a good weekend to binge watch this and get caught up for Monday!
Have a fun filled and safe weekend! And you football fans...I hope your team wins.;-)
