  Directed by Tim Fywell. With Tara Fitzgerald, Justine Waddell, Andrew Lincoln, Susan Vidler. Based upon Wilkie Collins' Victorian mystery, the gothic tale tells of a pair of half sisters whose lives end up caught in a grand conspiracy revolving around a mentally ill woman dressed in white. As the story unfolds, murder, love, marriage, and greed stand between the two women and happy lives.7/10(1K).   With Jessie Buckley, Olivia Vinall, Dougray Scott, Art Malik. A bold new adaptation of Wilkie Collins' classic gothic novel/10(K).

  While “The Woman in White” is faithful to its time period, the book always challenged social mores: Collins was a critic of the institution of marriage, and spent 20 years in simultaneous. Hartright finds that Laura bears an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white, called Anne Catherick. The simple-minded Anne had lived for a time in Cumberland as a child and was devoted to Laura's mother, who first dressed her in white. Hartright and Laura fall in love.

The Woman in White is definitely concerned with the difference between right and wrong. (Collins actually studied law for a time.) But while people run around pursuing justice in this book, they rarely get it. Sure, the villains die but they die by don't face a trial, or pay dues, or get thrown in the clink. The Woman in White Productions Ltd./ Steffan Hill/Origin Pictures This bold new adaptation by Fiona Seres retains the creeping atmosphere that has captured the imaginations of the book’s.
