Nicola Pagett in A Woman of Substance

A Woman of Substance

1984 NR

In this adaptation of part one of Barbara Taylor Bradford's "Woman of Substance" trilogy, Emma Harte (Jenny Seagrove) endeavors against long odds and little support to become as wealthy and powerful as any man of the day. In this epic of great sweep and grandeur, encompassing much of 20th-century history as a backdrop, Emma's determination becomes a metaphor for female empowerment in a world tilted so hard against it.
