For a story about a London harlot's trials and tribulations, this is one unsexy, drawn-out dirge with only a few smirking moments as relief.

Audience Reviews for Moll Flanders

Not a bad film, just a little dry and matter-of-fact.

well acted but slow and uninteresting.

It is lucky we are not born in the 1700's. Poor Moll goes through a lot.
