I've not read the book but there must be more to it than what was presented here.The acting was good but the writing was not. Minimal character development in the beginning made me wonder why I should care about any of these people. This had potential to be really suspenseful, even scary, but at under 90 minutes I felt that this movie barely scrapes the surface.

Was excited to see the movie after reading Lady MacBeth of the Mtensk District. It pretty much followed the story but cut out the last part that really brings the story full circle: a deeply unhappy young woman murdering all of the men controlling her life. The acting by Florence Pugh was stellar and the updated setting on the moor in Northern England was stunning and evocative. Worth a watch!

Nothing pedestrian about this one. A dark and wicked tale fueled by the great enabler -- lust -- which is propelled by revenge, hate and horror. Good Victorian grit.

A pretty average film from the UK about a recently married woman who found passionate love in one of her servants and then went on a murderous spree. Nothing stands out in this one.
