Critics Consensus

Olivia Cooke's brilliant portrayal of the feisty and scheming Becky Sharp in Vanity Fair makes this adaptation of Thackeray's classic novel more relatable for a 21st century audience.

Audience Reviews for Vanity Fair: Miniseries

  • Mar 21, 2021
    Would have been a 5 except for I HATE the beginning part where the guys says "striving for things not worth having" in every episode. So unneeded and that entire opening sequence after that, like what were they thinking!? Overall tho the show is great if you like Victorian dramas (I love them) it's only tiny bit "woke" but it's within the tolerable level (unlike most shows today) overall highly recommended!

    Excellent acting, anchored by Olivia Cooke, who steals every scene--even though her character is essentially unlovable. Struggling to find her place in a class-conscious world that values a fortunate birth over talent and ingenuity, Becky would be recognized today as a charming psychopath. She's manipulative, has no real emotional attachments, and only values people for what they can do for her.

    Absolutely disgusting. Why they gotta do my mans like that? 🤢
  • Oct 15, 2019
    Moved me to tears, the realistic portrayal, character development, acting, every scene and/or supporting actor seemed essential. The plot towards the end, when the Major discovers Becky's infidelity was the only weak point where it felt a tad forced. Other than that, what a heartbreaking and perfect rendition of intertwined lives. Fantastic. Music score one of the best in years; my only contention is the original Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division should have been used.

    Excellent excellent!!
