This review is from: Fingersmith  [DVD] (DVD)
Having read the novel by Sarah Waters, and being deeply moved by it, I decided to order the dvd and see how it had been interpreted on screen. I was impressed by the fact that the chemistry between the characters was not lost, and you genuinely cared about each individual. The only complaint that I actually have is the fact that a lot of the story had to be 'reduced', for example, in the book there is a lot made of Maud tending to her mother's grave with Sue always standing nearby, whereas in the film, that is not mentioned at all, which I felt was a shame.
However, overall, this is a fantastically produced production, based upon a real literary masterpiece. The acting is fantastic, and the passion, completely raw.
This is a film which will continue to move you over and over again.
