Jodhi May stars in this adaptation of the Henry James ghost story, as a governess sent to care for two children under mysterious circumstances. At first all is well, but when she starts to see ghosts things get a bit more complicated. It’s all very Victorian, and (for those like me who hadn’t read the book) you really have to take it on a Victorian level to understand what happens at the big climax. Colin Firth has an itty bitty part at the beginning as May’s charming employer. The costumes, while not terribly varied (because of the main characters’ class) are a beautiful look at middling class 1840s wear.
