Quotes

Sue: Why are you looking at me like that?
Jude Fawley: Does it scare you?
Sue: No. I am not afraid of any man.
Jude Fawley: Why?
Sue: Because no man would touch a woman unless she gives him reason to. A touch or a look that say come on. If you never look, they'll never come. You are the timid sex.

12 March 2001 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

The best film of the 1990's.

Dazzling and heartbreaking in every way imaginable.

Eccleston and Winslet give career performances, Hossein Amini's screenplay is judicious and honest, and Winterbottom's direction and cinematography capture everything there is in Hardy's greatest novel.

Unmissible, unparallelled, and devastatingly beautiful.
