Movie Summary

Director:
Pen Densham
Released:
1995
Rating:
PG-13

Moll Flanders is the 1996 period drama-romance from acclaimed writer-turned-director Pen Densham, adapted from the classic novel by Daniel Defoe. Moll Flanders (Robin Wright) has an Oliver-like pauper's birth, delivered by a woman who is saved from the gallows only for the duration of her pregnancy and hanged a few hours later. Instead of a pitiless Dickens orphanage, Moll grows up in a nunnery where she is fondled by priests, and beaten by nuns after attacking a priest who gropes Moll in confession. Tossed into the cruel streets Moll is taken in by a female Fagin stand-in, Mrs. Allworthy, proprietress of a bordello which counts politicians and clergy amongst its clientele.
