Period Film Review – Lorna Doone: A Romance of Exmoor (2001)

The setting of the film takes place in a region of England in the East Lyn Valley area of the counties Somerset and Devon. The valley is indeed a wild place replete with mist-shrouded groves, waterfalls, acres of untamed forest, and miles of rivers. It is home to not only the gentle farming folk who inherit its verdant fields but to a group of outlaws by the name of “the Doones.”
