The most recent adaptation of Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair” is released August (or September) 1st! My all time favorite novel. Simply everybody is in it, with Reese Witherspoon as Becky Sharp. I hope her accent has improved, but I sure do love her. Um, but as much as I love Jim Broadbent (and I do mean LOVE), he’s just several decades too old to be Jos Sedley, unless he’s playing Amelia’s grandfather instead of her brother. Hrmph!
Ha! And the lovely Natasha Little who played the starring roll in the recent (1998) BBC series of Vanity Fair has a bit part in the big production as Lady Jane Sheepshanks, *snort*.
Ooh! Aaah! Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) is responsible for the screenplay. I’m going to lick the screen. I die!
And a nice collection of on-set photos.
Thanks to ohmeohmy for sending me the trailer, yum!
