The Inheritance is a story, by Louisa May Alcott, about a girl who was raised in a wealthy American home in Concord, Massachusetts during the victorian era. She is supposed to be the daughter of the maid of the homeowner's brother, who died in Itlaly. She was raised by them by his request. Come to find out...She is actually his daughter. Very good movie. The sets are fantastic. Cari Shayne, the girl the show is about, was very good. And I loved Thomas Gibson. Brigid Brannagh was the bad girl and did it so well. You really hated her.
