For those of you who don't know, North and South follows Margret Hale - a preachers daughter who moves to the industrial town of Milton when her father quits his parson. There in Milton she meets Mr. Thornton. He is the master of Marlborough Mills, and is a good man, works hard, and tries his hardest to treat his employees fairly. Unfortunately, however, Margret's first encounter with him is when she witnesses him beating up one of his employees who was (once again) smoking inside the work rooms - thereby endangering everyone there since the cotton is so flammable. She dislikes him instantly, and no matter who tells her that the man deserved it, she refuses to changer her opinion of Mr. Thornton. He, however, feels quite differently about her, and actually ends up falling in love with her.
I've watched it twice already in the last week, and I'm hoping/planing to watch it a third time. It's just one of those movies I cannot get enough of. Even the soundtrack is perfect. It's haunting and eery but in gorgeous, a beautiful way. It suits the movie + story so perfectly.
Just writing this makes me want to watch it again! ♥
