Read the Novel
24 February 2018 | by aben-rudySee all my reviews

On its own it's fine, but it does a great injustice to Wilkie Collins' Victorian masterpiece. Collins' novel is not just a thriller, but a collection of wonderful character studies. This screenplay omits a few characters and alters many of them. By doing so it fails to capture the delightful humor of Collins' work.
