This TV production doesn't break any new ground in it's retelling of Henry James ghost story, but it's a nicely handled version all the same.
The relatively unknown cast give good performances. Johdi May as the governess has just the right mix of shyness and repression and is attractive without being overly glamorous. The freudian aspects of the story are hinted at but are not overdone.
As usual with a Masterpiece Theater production the production is superb and the English country house setting is beautiful.
