Fabulous costume drama,
This review is from: Vanity Fair [DVD] (DVD)
I haven't read the book, so came at the movie with no preconceived ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Reese Witherspoon is excellent in the lead and the directors vivid use of colour is remarkable.
The film is overlong at 2hrs 15mins and loses it's way in the middle, but the start and finish are of a quality that I can forgive this.
Overall, if this genre of movie is your thing, I would recommend you hire it, with a note caution from reading other reviews, that if you are looking for an accurate re-telling of the book, look elsewhere.
