Original Sin (2001) short review

Okay, confession time: I really love this movie! Yeah, it’s cheesy, it’s overly melodramatic, it tries WAY too hard to be eroTIQUE — but Angelina Jolie’s costumes (set in probably the late 1870s) are gorgeously sexy (if definitely Hollywood-ized), and for some reason I always get choked up at the big climax (no pun intended).
