Salacious, licentious and libertine, 18th-century style Fanny Hill follows the exploits of a simple country girl trying to make her way in the big city. Orphaned by small pox, Fanny journeys to London and, without fully realizing, falls into prostitution. Ms. Hill just as easily falls out of prostitution and then back in again as she learns the ways of the world.

Adapted by writer Andrew Davies (adapter of the most delicious BBC version of Pride and Predjudice), from John Cleland’s book, Fanny Hill just manages to walk the line of sex for hire without teetering over.

Grade: B Fanny Hill is currently available.
