2 DVDs! As seen on Masterpiece Theatre.....Appearances can be deceiving -- and dangerous.
Francie Fitzpatrick is young, beautiful and she is about to become the pawn in a vicious game of deceit, betrayal and greed.
The orphaned teenager arrives in Ireland to live with her cousin, Charlotte. To the townspeople, sombre, middle-aged Charlotte is the epitome of everything sensible. However, her plain exterior masks a sly woman hungry for money and prestige. To her, the flirtatious Francie is just the thing to tempt the wealthy gentlemen of the county and gain the social-climbing Charlotte a foothold in their privileged world. When Francie falls in love with the wrong man, Charlotte finds her plans derailed - and unleashes a devious scheme of fury and vengeance.
Filmed entirely on location in Ireland, The Real Charlotte is based on the Victorian novel by Somerville and Ross, creators of The Irish R.M.
