The story of Tess Durbeyfield, a low-born country girl whose family find they have noble connections.
Co-stars Hans Matheson and Eddie Redmayne have both starred as Marius in different adaptations of 'Victor Hugo''s novel, Les Misérables. Matheson appeared as Marius in Les Misérables (1998), while Redmayne played Marius in the musical version, Les Misérables (2012).
There are two musical anachronisms. First, Angel plays an autoharp which was not invented until the 1880s in Germany, and would not have been an English folk instrument at the time of TESS. Secondly, the congregation is heard singing "How Great Thou Art," which was written in Swedish in 1885, but was not commonly known in English until Stuart Hine's translation (circa 1950).
