This one's a little bit better than the critics seem to think. It's well photographed and features a minimal, unintrusive score. The cast is excellent and everyone does good work. The movie does a fine job of depicting some of the suffocating constraints that women have lived with, and the costs of trying to break free.
It's an imperfect movie and many of the criticisms I've read seem fair enough, but Lizzie is still engaging, and worth seeing.
