Gorgeous Gillian Anderson is destroyed by turn of the century New York's society and its rules - The House of Mirth review by AW

Spoiler Alert
24/08/2021

Beautifully shot, costumed, acted and cast but this is not a mirthful experience. Edith Wharton's novel was satirising the cruel society of her day which objectified women and made them fit only for marriage to a meal ticket. Some of the plot twists are a bit hard to follow without the detail that the prose of the novel would provide, but overall a fine achievement.
