A kiss that said it all in N+S by Jojemo A kiss that said it all in N+S by Jojemo
This was the moment we had waited for in the BBC's adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel, NORTH and SOUTH.

Many thanks, Billy.  The BBC's production of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel NORTH and SOUTH is one of my favorite Period movies.  After watching a couple of trailers of this movie on You Tube, my appetite for more was whetted, so I ordered the movie (on 2 DVD discs) from Amazon.  I have never regretted that purchase.  I think my drawing (above) illustrates my appreciation of that movie.  In my opinion, BBC's NORTH and SOUTH ranks right up there with BBC's PRIDE and PREJUDICE starring Colin Firth and Daniela Denby-Ashe.  I have that movie on several DVD discs also.

Thanks Kathleen.  This drawing has probably drawn more attention than any of my others.  My drawing tells you the movie was a hit with me.  I chose to draw one of its defining moments.  The train station meeting was an important scene in that movie.  They definitely saved the best for last!

This moment was the climax in the movie North and South (BBC production), and it did not come until almost the end.  But the wait only made this moment more precious.  It took Margret Hale (Daniela Denby-Ashe) a long time to fully appreciate and understand John Thornton (Richard Armitage).  We were glad when she finally came to this conclusion. :iconrichardarmitage:

I am glad Margaret got off that London bound train to meet up with John Thornton when she saw him on the northbound train.  I could never see her ending up with Henry.  The trouble with the movie, is that it all ended so quickly after that.  You wait so long for Margaret to come to her senses, and when she finally does....you just want to story to continue.....   I tried to put all of the tenderness that Thornton had been suppressing so long, into that drawing. :iconspazhugplz:

Thanks, Keyla.  I am pleased that you like it.  It was one of those tender, magic moments on the screen that, once viewed, cannot be forgotten. :iconsmoochplz:

Very nice work. I love the look on her face, like she's a little uncertain / apprehensive, but she's ting to go through with it anyway. :)

:iconthankyou1::iconthankyou2: Kaylenns. If you have seen North and South, you already know how Margaret Hale (played by Daniela Denby-Ashe) did not hold a high opinion of John Thornton (played by Richard Armitage) throughout most of this movie, until late in the movie, when her opinion of him changed. Maybe the look on her face is disbelief that he could still love her, after the way she had treated him. It was not my intenton to make her look uncertain. All I know is I waited a long time for this moment to finally happen between them. And when it finally did, it seemed as thought the movie ended too soon after that. :iconblushplz: :iconwhiteroseplz:

What a lovely compliment you have paid me. Thank you! My first exposure to this movie, was some You Tube trailers I watched. What I saw in them, was just enough to whet my appetite. I had to order the DVD from Amazon, as I couldn't find it in any of the local stores. I was not disappointed when the movie was delivered. I watched it from beginning to end. Once was not enough. I have seen it three time, and some parts I have viewed even more. I hope this movie becomes a classic. I think Richard Armitage played John Thornton every bit as well as Colin Firth played Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. In fact everyone in the N.& S. cast did an excellent job portraying their characters. I have read the book, too. The book language is a bit stilted, so it is not as easy to read as are most modern novels. That is to be expected though, as the author Elizabeth Gaskell, wrote it in 1855. :iconsmoochplz:

:iconthankyou1::iconthankyou2: Yes; this was indeed a tender moment in the movie. Long awaited, too. I thought, "Margaret Hale, you are a fool, if you don't love John Thornton." It took her awhile, but eventually she realized that she did love him. Your drawing of RA as Thorin Oakenshield, is outstanding. :iconamongststars:
