This review is from: Hard Times  [DVD] (DVD)
To young eyes, this may seem rather under-stated in terms of production expense, but sometimes the flashiest is not the longest-lasting. This version of one of the classic Dickens works is about the script and about characters. Here both the good and the bad - and there are more of the latter - are admirably played by a troupe of professionally successful actors. It is the performance that ultimately matters even if there are necessarily subtleties missing when compared with the book version. This is still the best version available.
