This review is from: Fingersmith  [DVD] (DVD)
Having read all of Sarah waters book and thoroughly enjoying the adaptation of tipping the velvet I was excited about seeing this. The film version of a book is never going to be as good as the book but this is truly awful, the story is rushed giving you no time to get to know the characters meaning you really dont care what happens to them. The acting is WAY over the top at times it's closer to a pantomime then drama and the portrayal of gentlemen is completely wrong. If you enjoy the book your going to be very disappointed with this movie.
