Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 31st, 2007

Bad Adaptation

One of the great novels of all time is reduced to a relatively short film starring Reese Witherspoon.

Becky Sharp is one of the most famous anti-feminist heroines in literary history and here she is given sympathetic characteristics and reimagined as someone who could be played by America's sweetheart.

Mira Nair totally misses the point and goes off on a wild tangent of a film that should in no way be mistaken as an adaptation of Thackeray's novel.

Shameful exploitation of a masterpiece.
