The Pursuit of Love – Pursuing love the storyline

What does it mean to find the ideal husband? In a world of English nobles still torn between the past and modernity, Linda Radlett and her cousin Fanny are two teenagers trying to find an answer to this question. The two, in an increasingly chaotic and decadent world, find themselves involved in a series of bizarre and decidedly unpredictable adventures and misadventures. Will the coveted search for love prove to be a success or will it be a failure?

The Pursuit of Love – Pursuing love comment

The Pursuit of Love takes us back to a world where women have only one task: to find a husband. Girls are educated right away to grow up with this one goal in mind, anyone who tries to find a different path is a slut if not worse. And in a world that oppresses, where men decide the fate of their wives, mothers, daughters, independence is seen as a deviance to be suffocated.

Emily Mortimer actress but above all director and screenwriter of the episodes, reports the lesson learned with The Newsroom (of which he was the protagonist), bringing out the romantic comedy set in the past from loanable canons, hiding in the folds of the search for love, a rebellious and independent feminist spirit. The miniseries does not try to overturn the dynamics of the past, but stuffs them with rhythm and movement, building scenes capable of speaking beyond the dialogues. Each character is a caricature apparently devoid of depth, but this is a very precise choice useful to make explicit the difference with the contemporary. The goal is not to make the past contemporary, but to bring today’s public closer to the past with an understandable and non-repulsive style. Dominic West is the perfect noble of those years, a master father who “if he were poor he would have been arrested” for the way he treats his children. Yet this was the world in which Linda and Fanny had to seek love.

The roundup of encounters that the two girls make during their life, will bring joys and sorrows, happiness and despair but will serve to show the different faces of love. Each male character is presented through well-defined traits, with subjective shots that make us experience the first impressions of the girls and cards that recall the presentations of reality shows (as a construction not as a style).

A continuous and desperate search that will make the two protagonists grow, deeply united even if different in the approach to life and love. Especially once they grow up their choices will lead them to separate. Linda, raised in a rigid and oppressive environment, seeks freedom, imagination, creativity; Fanny having always wanted to get away from the specter of a mother who abandoned her to pursue her amusement, she dreams of her stability.
