Fingersmith Ep. 1
Conman Richard Rivers plans to defraud heiress Maud Lilly by seducing her into marriage and then commit her to an asylum. Rivers’ accomplice Sue develops genuine feelings for Maud but convinces Maud that Rivers love for her is true.
A lovely take on female love and it brings the reality of Charles Dickin's London and the time previous to women's suffrage right home. Nice take on issues as well as beautiful and unexpectedly sensual.
Wow,disturbing,trust no one. Think twice,listen for truth so life’s underbelly doesn’t take you in. Very different time.
Really enjoyed wish it was longer, but it was very satisfying.
