It's worth seeing Jude, a stark adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure, just for the extraordinary performance of Christopher Eccleston as Jude Fawley.

Young English actress Kate Winslet adds luster and energy to Jude, a bold and generally successful attempt to adapt Thomas Hardy's final novel, Jude the Obscure, to the bigscreen.

Without the benefit of Hardy's prose, the point of the movie is lost in the grim, grayish ether.

Jude remains a handsome if gravely flawed film.

The dark, steel engraving look that cinematographer Eduardo Serra has given Jude endows it with a somber magnificence.

Jude is knockout Hardy, filled with stormy visual poetry and accompanied by a gorgeous yet simple score.

The problem here isn't grimness but a failure to make grimness wrench the heart.

Winterbottom is angry, clear-headed, and with a sure visual sense.

This is a film of tremendous scope and emotional depth that uncovers the soul of a novel and brings it to life on the screen.

Watching the wan Christopher Eccleston as Jude and Kate Winslet as his cousin and lover Sue Bridehead, an audience might well wonder what all the fuss was about.
