Who has seen this..?

 

I went tonight, and LOVED IT.  The film truly captures the dark, gloomy atmosphere I remembered very well from the book-(I read it when I was an adolescent, and never saw any film adaptation...).  Elizabeth Olsen is just on the spot for the role-(thank God no Keira Knightley here!), and loved seeing Jessica Lange again.  She was fantastic.

 

Go see it.

I saw a trailer last week, but hadn't heard that this was in process, so I'm pretty clue-free.  It looked great, and I'm glad to hear good news.

Glenn Close was supposed to play Mme. Raquin, but she dropped and instead Lange was called-(she is magnificent here).  Funny...there's a sequence with Lange which looks carbon copy from one of Close's best remembered ones.  Of course we all know the story, but I think given that I never went back to the book again, and never saw any other film adaptations, made it for a very pleasant night at the cinema.
