Ever since her birth in Newgate Prison, Moll has survived by her cunning wit, and considerable powers of seduction. In between using and deceiving her besotted paramours, she is not above picking a pocket or two. All the while, though, her heart belongs to the charismatic Jemmy. Inevitably, even the most clever criminal's luck runs out and Moll is soon facing hangman's noose. Special features included.

I didn't like it. I couldn't watch the whole thing. It was just disgusting. Thought it would be different. I just don't
understand why she took off and left her children behind just to go from man to man.

I watched the entire thing since it was so interesting what would happen next ... but it is definitely not for children or teens!!! Mature adults only. I'd say too much of the woman's body exposed for my taste.

I count 7 kids, 5 husbands, numerous lovers, two continents, abandonment, starvation, a stint in prison, etc., etc., and she still comes out on top. A true classic. Not for children (nudity/sex). Note to fans: There is a small part played by Diana Rigg.

Well done. Rather graphic. True to the novel which is what I look for in a film adaptation of the book. Good casting.

I'd say 'poor Moll' but hey, you're supposed to put your kids first, lady! Anyways, what a gal. Great & engaging story telling. I'd recommend it over any crap Hollywood is putting out lately.
