Fingersmith Ep. 1
Conman Richard Rivers plans to defraud heiress Maud Lilly by seducing her into marriage and then commit her to an asylum. Rivers’ accomplice Sue develops genuine feelings for Maud but convinces Maud that Rivers love for her is true.
I liked the way the two episode structure reflected the two main points of view in the novel. The acting was great but the production value was poor, the image quality was like old VHS tape, and the rhythm of cuts was frequently choppy.
Loved it. It was very close to the book. Good job to all.
Loved it! I wish that it was more than just 2 episodes.
Bad acting. Just Bad.
