|The rollicking adventures and bawdy conquests of one of literature's towering heroes come to life in this glorious new film from A&E and the BBC. TOM JONES romps across 18th century England, from the bedrooms of rural inns to London's dangerous streets. Cast out from his home and forbidden his true love, Tom Jones must overcome the sinister plots of a nefarious rival and prove himself in battle and the boudoir to win his rightful inheritance.
The harum-scarum hero and his infectious exploits sparkle like never before in this faithful adaptation of Henry Fielding's masterpiece. Filmed on location throughout England, TOM JONES features Samantha Morton (Jane Eyre, Emma), Pride and Prejudice's Benjamin Whitrow, Brian Blessed (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) and engaging newcomer Max Beesley as Tom.
