Screenwriter Andrew Davies (Bridget Jones's Diary, Bleak House) brings all of his sly, stylish wit to this adaptation of 18th-century Britain's most notorious novel. With a mischievous glint in her eye and plenty of knowing winks, Fanny relates her journey from wholesome naif to worldly woman. After losing her parents to smallpox, the poor country girl travels to London, where she falls into prostitution under the guidance of an infamous madam. Forced to take a series of lovers to survive, Fanny learns to relish sensual delights - but reserves her heart for her one true love.
