Vanity Fair: Miniseries Reviews

December 21, 2018
Softening Becky's edges and defanging the story's satire, Amazon offers a self-contradictory miniseries without much of a point.

Cooke does an admirable job making the cold-hearted, quick-witted Becky entertainingly unlikable; if only the production didn't require her to break the fourth wall with periodic smirks to the camera.

Absent venom and mockery, there's no edge and certainly no laughs. What's left is just another competent adaptation of a particularly famous book, and ultimately - regrettably - a forgettable one.

Perhaps it's impossible now to give Vanity Fair a worthy adaptation, but ITV's attempt could at least do with sharpening its claws, if only to see how brilliantly flawed and utterly fascinating a character Becky Sharp has always been.
