Although it has its involving moments, the watered-down Waugh fails to make any kind of lasting connection.
The one performer who seems at home with the gravity of it all is Emma Thompson.
The saga ultimately lacks the emotional wallop of the TV version. But its clever writing, strong performances and sumptuous production design make for a rich experience nonetheless.
