Movie Info

An unusual love story told in three episodes, Tipping the Velvet charts the course of Nan, an ingénue who discovers a sexually charged world of male impersonators, actors and affluent women looking for female companionship in the usually controlled and corseted 1890s. Ultimately, however, Nan learns that she can only truly depend on herself. Stars Keeley Hawes, Rachel Stirling, John Bowe, Jodhi May, Anna Chancellor and Hugh Bonneville.

Audience Reviews for Tipping the Velvet

Good!

Three episode "mini-series" produced by the BBC and set in England in the late 1800's. It follows young Nan as she comes to terms with her sexuality in restrictive Victorian society. Other than a few steamy moments it's obvious this one was destined for television. Tipping the Velvet is to lesbian romance what Lonesome Dove is to the western genre. A solid but somewhat less than spectacular effort.

Silly but watchable.

A good adaptation, but I felt that the inculsion of peril from which Nan had to be resuced by Diana rather unnecessary.
