DESCRIPTION

What a wonderful surprise this movie turned out to be, having found it by chance while searching for movies by Timothy Dalton. The inspiring story of Florence Nightingale is beautifully brought to life by Jaclyn Smith and Timothy Dalton as the lead in this all star cast production. The courage and bravery shown by Nightingale in pursuing her calling is one that touched something deep within me and I felt inspired and grateful for this wonderful depiction of her life by Hollywood's finest. As a little girl and a student of history I read about Florence Nightingale but the import of what she did at a time when most aristocratic women will not deign to touch a commoner or care for one as a nurse; to rise against that prevailing prejudice and opposition, and transform the sanitation of London hospitals as well as the British army hospitals during the Crimean war, says a lot for her nobility and strength of purpose. Jaclyn Smith was great as Florence Nightingale and so was Timothy Dalton as her great love and friend. Claire Bloom, Ann Thornton, Timothy West, Peter McEnery, Stephan Chase and Jeremy Brett also played their parts beautifully to bring to life this inspirational story
