Too long and overall a morose sad story. Disappointed, although the costumes and lifestyles depicted were probably correct. Silly shallow people.

I enjoyed the book more than the movie. The movie was way too slow, too long. It could have easily had 20 minutes cut from it to make it only a two-hour film!
The more of these historical films I see, the more I realize that thankfully women have life much better nowadays!

At 2 hours and 10 minutes this is a relatively long film. Set in New York a century ago, it is about a young woman and her quest for a wealthy husband, with tragic results. If you enjoy costume dramas, this will be your cup of tea. I personally find it a tad slow and talky.

A well done drama. Nice to see our Canadian actors together in this one.

This is one of the most mirthless movies I've ever seen.

I loved Gillian Anderson! Great acting on her part, beautiful clothes, scenery, and music. I totally enjoyed it. I haven't read the book so I had no expectations. Dan aykroyd was terrible as well as Eric stole in parts.

Not a very good movie, despite having garnered some good reviews. Acting is ordinary at best and often just plain poor. Director didn't seem to put much into it. Tried to copy some methods used in similar British dramas but missed badly

Loved the book - didn't translate too well into movie. I blame the director.
