The Wings Of The Dove

WingsOfTheDoveposterBBBB.5

(out of 5)


Superior adaptation of the Henry James novel has  encourage her secret fiance  to feign love for dying heiress  in order for them both to get their hands on her money once the earnest woman dies. What neither of them count on is that they both grow true affection for Elliott, Roache especially falling in love with her. As often happens in James, characters manipulate an innocent victim and get away with it as far as the outside world can see, but their inability to escape their own consciences does them in every time. Bonham Carter has never been more complex or fascinating, Roache is possibly the most kissable man in the movies and Elliott is absolutely divine in a career-changing role.
