Coming closer to the truth of everything will cause Mary to fear for her life.Written by
Suitable dark and gritty setting but poorly adapted, cast and directed. Daphne Du Maurier's story and characters were barely recognizable in this version. Lots of staring and pouting but not much feeling and lots of characters and incidents added unnecessarily to an otherwise good story. I read Jamaica Inn long ago and just re-read the book so was looking forward to a new adaptation of it but was extremely disappointed. Jessica Brown Findlay left Downton Abbey for this?
