I never saw the TV series, nor read the original novel, so the movie did not suffer through comparison. I just loved it. I thought it was visually beautiful, well-acted and thought-provoking. It will not be for everyone for sure--if you need to see adrenalin-rush inducing scenes-- well none of those in this film. If you are homophobic-- well not for you. If you don't want religion questioned--not for you. If you want to have a feast for the eyes, understand a little about 1930's British high society, and the impact of "orthodox" religion can have on a family and the individual family members--this is a must see. Beautifully directed and filmed.
