Well acted and a good production
2 August 2002 | by (Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

Even though the plot is complete incredible, the screenplay is quite faithful to the original book by Wilkie Collins. The cast is excellent: Greg Wise as the long-lost cousin who brings the priceless Moonstone, Antony Sher as the famous Sergeant Cuff who investigates its disappearance, Peter Vaughan as the faithful old butler and Keeley Hawes as the charming and beautiful owner of the priceless gem.

Plus, the film has a nice soundtrack and a lovely setting.
