Abstract:

This adaptation of Henry Fielding's beloved novel, Tom Jones, is a picaresque adventure through the eighteenth century. Tom Jones, an abandoned infant of nebulous parentage, is found at the home of the good-natured Squire Allworthy and his sister Bridget. Raised as the ward of the unmarried country gentleman, he grows into a handsome and roguish lad, irresistible to the women around town. His one true love, however, is the beautiful Sophie, daughter of his boorish and opportunistic neighbor, Squire Western. Along the long and winding road to London, his humble origins and youthful indiscretions combine to reveal his true identity, for a happy ending as is traditional in comedy.
