Watch The Bleak House
- 1 Season
"Bleak House" (2005) was an English TV series based on the novel by Charles Dickens. The protagonist, Esther Summerson, is a young girl who was abandoned by her mother and raised by her godmother. When she dies, Esther is sent to live with a new guardian, John Jarndyce, and serves as a companion to his ward Ada. A lot of the story has to do with the lawsuit Jarndyce vs Jarndyce, which concerns a large inheritance everybody wants, and revelations about Esther's actual parentage.
