ReviewSource Movie House Commentary
Review The most interesting thing about the novel Sons and Lovers, an early work by D.H. Lawrence, is that it is nearly an autobiography. Lawrence's own parents were severely mismatched. His father was a barely literate miner and his mother was a schoolteacher who resented the hand life had dealt her, which was to raise children in a grim, impoverished, uncultured mining community while her husband spent every day in the pits and every night in the pubs...The scriptwriter did a lot of things right. First, he did a good job of working around Lawrence's stiff, windy dialogue. He didn't make it contemporary because he wasn't doing an episode of Xena, but a recognized masterpiece that had to retain its feel. So he kept the words, but reduced their quantity, either making the exchanges terser and more natural or eliminating dialogue altogether in favor of pauses and glances whenever possible.
