When Emmy Award nominations were announced last month, two Maryland-made series were front and center in the news. HBO's “Veep” and the Netflix drama “House of Cards” made the short list for best comedy and drama, respectively, with a pack of other nominations for writers, directors and stars. Almost all the coverage - mine included - was about Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. But there were other nominations announced at the same time in the creative arts category - nominations that didn't get nearly as much attention.

"Moll Flanders" is a melodrama of the old school, rife with sin and agony and women in uncomfortable dresses and men in puffy shirts and enough personal disasters to shake up the Sphinx.No, it's not credible. But it's enjoyable storytelling if you get into the spirit of the film, directed and adapted by Pen Densham, who wrote "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" and "Backdraft."Given Densham's credits, the Hollywood treatment of Daniel Defoe's classic novel isn't surprising; in fact, the film clearly says it is "based on the character from the novel by Daniel Defoe."
