An essential 19th century English novel has been turned into a colorful and elegant adaptation by director Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding). William Makepeace Thackeray's tale of a scheming social climber during Britain's Regency period provides a meaty role for Reese Witherspoon who plays the wily, protoliberated Becky Sharpe, scaling London society as if she was the only woman aware of sex and how to use it.
Vanity Fair delights the eye! Scheming, beautiful, seductive and utterly self-serving, Becky Sharpe is played with great verve by Reese Witherspoon. - David Ansen, Newsweek
