Tammy Blanchard, pure greatness
15 April 2003 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I'm actually not a big fan of the movie itself, but I think it's worth watching if you want to see a marvelous performance by a great young actress. Tammy Blanchard is amazing as Marianne Mulvaney. Blythe and Beau are good as always but young Tammy is the star of this one.

Not a great adaptation of the book though, 7.5/10
