Fails to get at James' subtler and deeper inner truths about his cast of characters.

A slender recital, yet more affecting than the entire Merchant-Ivory canon

Audience Reviews for Daisy Miller


Cybill Shepard, a fine comedienne in future years and a capable dramatic actress when the part is right, is hopelessly miscast here and throws the entire picture out of balance. Beautiful settings and cinematography and excellent performances from Eileen Brennan, Cloris Leachman and Mildred Natwick offset the damage somewhat but its still a miss.

Painfully boring, the acting is wooden and unappealing, a misguided mess. I do not know what happened to Peter Bogdonovich on this one, especially since he had three smash hits just prior - The Last Picture Show, What's Up Doc? and Paper Moon. A huge disappointment. Cybill Shepherd is way out of her acting league in this one. The sets are excellent though and the cinematography is good, the costumes are exceptional, so it's not a total mess.
