Happy hump day everyone! Speaking of hump day, have you seen the Geico camel commercial? Hilarious! We have a running joke about it at work between some of my co-workers and we are always mimicking the commercial. So funny! Well anyways. Hope you all are having a great week! I made this asian chicken noodle soup last night that was super delicious. I hope to make it again soon so I can share the recipe with you all! Yes, it was that good! Well welcome to another period film post on Parade's End. Hope you enjoy.
Parade's End is a 5-part miniseries which premiered on BBC in August of last year and premiered on HBO in February. I happened to come across it while browsing my HBO Go and thought I'd give it a shot since I had heard good things about it. It was wonderful and I loved it. It's an adaptation from a set of novels of the same name by Ford Madox Ford and starred Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, Adelaide Clemens, Rupert Everett, Miranda Richardson, and Jack Huston. It's the story of a love triangle between an old fashioned Mr. Teitjens (Cumberbatch), his wife Sylvia (Hall), and a young suffragette Valentine (Clemens). It takes place during World War I at a time where things in Europe were changing both socially and economically. Sylvia is beautiful, vindictive, and controlling, while Valentine is adorable, sweet, and kind and Teitjens must decide who to spend his life with after fighting in the war. He also has a son with Sylvia that may or may not be his which doesn't make his choice any easier. This was such a lovely series and I am so glad I gave it a shot. The scenery was absolutely beautiful and the costumes worn, especially by Sylvia, gorgeous! Watching this made me want to read the novels so maybe I'll just do that when I find the time.
