    Olivia Cooke vibrantly inhabits what little soul the ruthlessly opportunistic Becky Sharp possesses in this irreverent seven-part adaptation of the Thackeray classic. [10 - 23 Dec 2018, p.9]

    Much of the show is a conscious bowdlerization of the epic Thackeray novel. What is lost in the wry and fat prose, the skewering of petty gnat-sized gentry, is regained in the lean performances of the perpetually suffering actors, especially Cooke’s Becky Sharp.

    It’s neither terrible nor amazing, but at the very least, it’s efficient.
