Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

don't know how old i was. maybe about 7.

Recollection and revelations

my grandmother watched this. i suppose it reminded her of the values of her Victorian youth. did it inspire me? i think it helped me to learn those values too. honesty, integrity, courage.
