The director, Joe Wright, is pretty much a 'nobody' who has done only a handful of 'nothing films': three miniseries: "Charles II: The Power & the Passion" (2003), "Bodily Harm" (2002), and "Nature Boy" (2000) and two feature films, The End (1998) and Crocodile Snap (1997).

Gosh, I hope this doesn't suck. I have a sneaking suspicion that it most definitely will NOT do the book, nor the other film and tv versions of it justice. I'm sure Keira will be dazzling, but the film itself will bomb, both critically and at the box office (I have my doubts as to whether it will even be released in the U.S.) I know I have a very skeptical and negative view, but, hey -- they're tampering with a classic. I really hope I'm wrong!
