Excellent
25 December 1998 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

To me "The Turn of the Screw" is a very good movie. Patsy Kensit played the role of "Jenny" marvelously. The story is very entertaining and leaves you hungry for more. The ending was very unexpectedly, but that makes it very fascinating. The setting is very beautiful and right for the kind of story it tells. It may have gotten bad reviews but to me this is one of the best movies I've ever seen!
