This movie is so underrated. Reese Witherspoon was fantastic. Wonderful performances, glorious production, intelligent script. Somehow i don't even remember when this film came out. Sorry i didn't get the chance to see it on the big screen.

It almost makes you wonder whether Vanity Fair is not the perfect text for a lesson in Buddhist detachment. Certainly, Vanity Fair is a never-ending Western story that benefits from Nair's philosophically Eastern point of view. Full Review

Thackeray said that he wanted "to leave everybody dissatisfied and unhappy at the end of the story." Nair may have had other intentions, but by film's end, audiences are bound to be left dissatisfied with the choppy and confusing storytelling style and unhappy about the missed opportunity.

I wonder if anything could have made this misfire work. Full Review

Despite its flaws, the movie is compulsively watchable, and few will be bored by it. It's a charming movie that falls short of greatness, but is still worth a solid recommendation. Full Review
