SILAS MARNER: Falsely accused of theft by the friend who stole his fiance, linen-weaver Silas Marner (Ben Kingsley) is driven from his religious community. Seeking refuge in the distant village of Raveloe, Silas becomes a recluse and instead of human contact, he amasses a huge pile of gold which he lovingly counts every night. Enter Dunstan Cass, the dissolute younger son of the local squire of Ravelo who steals Marner's gold and disappears. Once more Marner is left bereft. Then one night he comes home to a warm and vital replacement for his lost gold--a baby girl asleep on the hearth. Silas adopts the child, christens her Eppie after his mother, and rears the girl with enormous tenderness and love. But even this newfound happiness comes under threat when Eppie's real father returns to claim her.
