This is a 17th century novel made into a film. Jane Austen was not involved however. Could this be why it didn’t work 100% for me? Maybe. Rachel Weisz is hot enough to take the paint off a show car the the plot and other characters fell a bit flat for me. Hear me talk about its potential had it been more like a very early Mike Myers comedy with “axe murderer” in the title. I put some new music in this one as well. Hope you like it.
