For lovers of historical dramas and literary classics, this is a "must see". Everything about this BBC production is first-class and I wonder how it missed receiving at least one BAFTA or Golden Globe nomination? Paul Dano, Lily James and James Norton give fine performances as the three leading characters,Pierre, Natasha and Andrei, with a wonderful supporting cast, chief of whom, in my opinion, is veteran actor, Jim Broadbent. The costumes and cinematography are equally marvellous and afford viewers the unique opportunity of stepping inside some of Latvia's and Lithuania's most beautiful palaces. The early 19th century in Russia, was indeed an ostentatious time for those who could afford it.
Credit must also go to screenwriter Andrew Davies for his excellent adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novel. It must have been a daunting task.
