    Absolutely the BEST version that has been brought to screen! Every actor/actress plays their role to perfection. The perfection of acting talent is only matched by the astounding attention to detail of the costuming, tools, sets, and atmosphere of the period. The only complaint that I could have is that there were scenes cut, that aired in the forward to part 2 of the miniseries. I almost never give anything a 10 of 10 rating, but this production definitely deserves it. Expand

    The film aims for a dry authenticity that only fractionally reflects the big, wild volume on which it's based, cutting away nearly all of its poetry and most of its madness.

    For all its flights of fancy the Encore mini-series is not entirely silly or even half bad. Shot mostly in Nova Scotia, it's an ambitious, beautifully made adventure tale that seeks to be respectful of the book while still making the characters and story accessible to modern viewers.

    The glory of this particular adaptation, intentional or not, is that what we bring to it with today's sensibilities can actually enhance the experience.
