The movie was exactly as expected. A gorgeous period piece filled with sumptuous interiors divine dresses and exquisite exterior landscapes. The gang was all there, visible and with juicy lines given to everyone. The storyline -one cannot actually call it a plot- was nothing surprising. Nothing new or interesting was revealed about any character and in fact I would argue that Edith had a perfect opportunity to exclaim her desire to break free from the mold of a duchess or whatever she is and do something meaningful but all she did is whine – which is unfortunately rather true to character.
