1. Silas Marner (Animated)

1. Silas Marner (Animated)

Golden Babe Award -Chicagoland Educational Festival
"Highly Recommended. A stunning, animated version of Eliot's classic tale of injustice, and finally love and happiness." -National Media Review
Based on the 1861 Victorian novel, Silas Marner, by George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans), this is the digitally re-mastered animated version of the classic tale. When the weaver, Silas Marner, wrongfully loses his job, as well as the woman he loves, he moves to the English countryside village of Raveloe, consumed with bitterness and anger, and becomes a miserly recluse, saving each gold piece he earns. On Christmas Eve his gold is stolen and all seems lost until an abandoned little girl, whom he names Eppie, wanders into his house, bringing joy back into his life. "I found my gold again," Silas says, and he raises her as his own. The bond they share redeems the life of the village squire. Directed and Animated by Alison de Vere. 83/09DE PIJSCA 30 min.
