Directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding), this lush and lively romantic adventure looks at the lives of Becky Sharp (Reese Witherspoon – The Importance of Being Earnest, Legally Blonde) and her best friend Amelia Sedley (Romola Garai – Dirty Dancing – Havana Nights), as they climb the 19th Century social ladder in London.
Becky Sharp yearns for a more glamorous life than her birthright as an
artist’s daughter promises. She seduces and schemes her way to the top of
society by any means possible, using all her wit, guile and sexuality, until
love and romance threaten to get in her way.
