Trailer for Scarlett
Pros: Sean Bean, one of the greatest actors of our time, is in it.
Cons: Everything else about it.
First, the scenes between Timothy Dalton and Annabeth Gish were so tedious, they could have and in fact should have been handled by narrative. Second, none of the performers (save Paul Winfield) who played the characters we saw in GWTW were anywhere near close to the caliber of the original actors--it was quite a let down. Third, Jean Smart's character was over played and unnecessary. Fourth, I'm sorry to say that in that period of our country's history, there is no way Big Sam would have been accepted as a merchant in the South--nor would he have been able to be so "educated" in his manner. Fifth, the musical score was completely out of sync with both the mood and the time period of the film. Sixth, I love Sean Bean--he and Colm Meany both gave excellent performances, but that wasn't enough to save this production. And finally, speaking as a Southern woman, our Katie Scarlett would NEVER have gone on a fox hunt without wearing her riding gloves. I own this DVD because I collect Sean's work, but otherwise it is a waste of your time to watch. You'll never get those hours back! ...
