: Vanity Fair :


Growing up poor in London, Becky Sharp (Witherspoon) defies her poverty-stricken background and ascends the social ladder alongside her best friend, Amelia

I love movies set in this period and Reece Witherspoon did an amazing job as usual portraying her character. Her determination drove her to climb the social ladder, but at what cost. Her friendship with Amelia suffers for awhile, and her marriage is not the fairytale that she expects it to be. And her son, giving him the life that she thinks will benefit him, without care or regard to what he or her husband wants. It just goes to show ... don't think that money can buy you happiness.
If anything, the movie could have been just a little shorter.

RATING - 7/10
