Affinity (2008) short review


Another Sarah Waters novel adaptation, this one is fine but not inspired. Margaret Prior visits a women’s prison as a charitable endeavor in 1870s England, and gets emotionally involved with one the prisoners, with some trips into 19th century Spiritualism-land. The costumes are nice although very restrained (lots of somber colors as befits the mood).
