What a lot of angst about lesbian relationships. Margret falls for Dawes (Selena), but it appears that Dawes is just using everyone to achieve her ends.
It looks very beautiful (the costumes are great), but the set designers seem to have ignored the point of the panopticon setting. Margaret is perhaps a bit too assertive, Selina perhaps not serene enough, and the subplot of Margaret's proposal offer lessens the pathos of her character from the book, but it is perhaps more problematic for such a prominent media to portray a lesbian as a plain spinster, as we are trying to do away with old assumptions in the new millennium. However, the overall atmosphere of control and oppression is still put across well, and at least they didn't tamper with the ending too much.
