The definition of bad.
16 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is so bad I challenge you to sit through it. It must have been directed by an imbecile. I love Hawthorne and this was the single worst adaptation I've ever seen of his material. I have seen this lead actress in some other things and she was very good in them so I don't know what happened here. The director must have been picked out of a hat. He managed to turn one of Hawthorne's finest tales into a miserable experience. He failed to capture the essence of the story, but managed to dumb it down and cloud it with clichés. I encourage anyone who has seen this to read the original text and vindicate Hawthorne of this horrible misdoing. If nothing else, this serves as an example of how not to adapt a story to the screen.
