5.0 out of 5 stars The Unsinkable Becky Sharp June 15 2006
As the story opens in London in 1802, we meet Becky Sharp, a poor but spirited little girl. She is soon orphaned and sent to be a servant in a posh girls' school. She acquires a good education and is determined to climb the social ladder, starting as a governess, then marrying a promising Army officer. She spends the next twenty years relentlessly pursuing her dream of being a lady.

This movie is beautiful and lavish, everything that a good period piece should be. I haven't read the book, so I just enjoyed the movie on its own merits. Reese Witherspoon does a great job with the English accent and plays the Scarlet O'Hara-ish Becky with loads of charm and brains. She really is irresistible as well as formidable, and gives an Oscar-worthy performance. The costumes and sets are opulent, with lots of striking orange fabrics.

There are plenty of ups and downs for Becky and the plot is never dull. I love period movies and this one had all the required triumphs and tragedies,romance and spectacle, to make it very satisfying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed mess - Reese doesn't help Aug. 12 2005
Sorry, this came on satellite one night and my girlfriend said she had wanted to see it. She knew that I don't like Reese Witherspoon in general, but I was intertested in the story. Well the problem was that Reese Witherspoon was just not believable, and every time she appeared on the screen it was tough not to change the program. To the film's credit it is beautifully filmed but there is just nothing to grab a hold of. The only merits I gave it were the sub-plot involving Amelia and her apparently rotten husband. Whenever those actors took over the story it was actually engaging. Merit goes to the scene when the father breaks down in anguish over the grave of his rotten son, whom he had disowned, who has fallen in battle. But then it's back to the Reese Witherspoon show and tedium with her poor attempt at a British accent and very narrow acting range. After a while the performance seems hung on her sideways mischevious smile, though nothing she does or says backs it up. Nice try. The storytelling is also not good, and sections jump from premise to conclusion without so much as one pause for pathos. With some plot developments, if you blink, you miss it. Way too long at 140 minutes, but such a story needs a long telling...perhaps a series on BBC could do it justice...The end result of this film treatment is a mindless story with the parts clunked together.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for loyal Robert Pattinson fans Aug. 3 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD recently and although he was cut out of the movie, he did appear in the deleted scenes section of the DVD. I bought this DVD mainly to see if he appeared in any part of the movie and am happy to say he was beautiful in the deleted scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful period drama Feb. 21 2005
By A Customer
I enjoyed this beautiful and haunting story. I think the only character I did not really enjoy was Reese Witherspoon as Becky. Her looks are too modern to be considered clasicaly bewitching the way Becky must have been in the early 1800s.
I enjoyed the other portrayals, especially that of Amelia, Rawdon and Capt. Dobbin. I enjoyed Becky on the BBC/A&E production much more! This is still a beautiful movie, and I will watch it again. The DVD has many extras which are enjoyable.

Although the author's books are heavy and hard to get through sometimes, this movie has a good pace and the costuming is very good indeed.
