Natascia's Review of The Scarlet Letter
The Scarlet Letter(1995)
This film is described as a "free adaptation" of Hawthorne's novel ... and, boy, do they mean "free". Aside from character names, location, and the scarlet letter itself, the film barely bore any resemblance to original story. The acting was mediocre, the script cheesy, and the plot so ridiculously hollywoodized and cheap that this film is an insult to Hawthorne's classic.
