Movie Info

The Dwelling Place is the 1994 made-for-TV adaptation of the best-selling Catherine Cookson novel. In 19th century England, teenager Cissie Brodie (Tracy Whitwell) is left on her own after she loses her parents and the family home. She finds a place to stay in a cave in order to take care of her younger brothers and sisters. She falls in love with the equally poor carpenter Matthew Turnbull (Ray Stevenson), who is burdened with caring for his aging parents. Cissie is raped by aristocrat Clive Fischel (Edward Rowie-Hicks) and ends up having a child that she must fight to keep against the child's biological grandfather, Lord Fischel (James Fox).
