The Woman in White

The Woman in White Combining romance, intrigue, and danger, Wilkie Collins’ beloved mystery novel has taken generations of readers on a thrilling ride along the corridors of English country houses, and down into the dankest, deepest corners of the Victorian madhouse. This bold new adaptation by Fiona Seres retains the creeping atmosphere that has captured the imaginations of the book’s readers for over a century while bringing a distinctly modern take to its striking female characters, its charismatic, formidable villains, and its gripping, labyrinthine plot.

When Walter Hartright, a young drawing master, encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road on London’s Hampstead Heath, he is drawn into a web of intrigue that will transform his life forever. Offering his assistance to this distressed, spectral woman, he is later shocked to discover that she had just escaped from a nearby insane asylum.

My thoughts:

The Woman in White is somewhere between a mystery and a gothic thriller. It’s loaded with dark intrigue and spooky scenes without the needless gore you see in many thrillers. I love the costumes. the music, and the set of the movie which definitely helps add to the air of mystery. If I had to use one word to describe this it would be haunting. The scene with the woman in white in the graveyard is an absolute must.

If you enjoy Victorian Gothic novels or movies, you have got to watch this. I’ve never read the book by Wilkie Collins so I cannot speak about how closely it follows the book, but I hope to read it soon. That’s how good this movie is. Buy it on Amazon.
