Running time:123 minutes

Description: Born into poverty in early 18th Century London, Moll Flanders learns early the lessons of hardship and despair, and the cruelty of class. From the reputable home of the charitable Mrs. Mazzawatti to the house of ill-repute of the less benevolent Mrs. Allworthy, Moll steadfastly holds tight to her dreams of finding happiness. When love finally finds her, it is not in the bedchambers of powerful men, but in the gentle brushstrokes of a struggling artist. Still Moll is no match for the ignorance of the day, and finally it seems as though life itself has conspired against her. Her unwavering hope and strength of heart are ultimately rewarded, however, when a twist of fate and the trust of an old friend present her with the opportunity to turn the tables on her past.
