Fanny Hill (2007) short review

Very enjoyable in what movie reviewers would call a “period romp” sort of way! The adaptation of the classic novel is fun without making Fanny into a ditz. They don’t shy away from showing the erotic aspects, but they don’t make it cheap. The costumes were a bit mish-mashy, mixing up elements from different periods of the 18th century, although still pretty.
