Modern-day version of Dickens' masterpiece
V. R. Hutter | Durham, NC | 06/09/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Forget everything you know about the usual portrayal of the Dickens' masterpiece and enjoy this movie as a wonderful story in a modern setting. The plot translates perfectly to today's world. The casting is magnificent, directing very good and acting is wonderful. Gwyneth Paltrow is stunning, Ethan Hawke is very believable, Anne Bancroft absolutely became the mentally deranged aunt who teaches her niece from an early age to hate men and break their hearts. At first I was afraid I wouldn't like a modern version of the masterpiece, but it captures your attention immediately and is definitely a keeper. I recommend it."
