Extremely Poor. If you like the book and/or the 1980s mini-series don't waste your time with this movie.

Yes, it's nice looking and there's some very good acting*, but mostly everything in this film reminds you of how good the book and the 1980s mini-series are.

*Emma Thomson is great, though her Lady Marchmain is severe and lacking the appeal taht would draw people to her side. Patrick Malahide as Charles Ryder's father is excellent but he unforyunately doesn't have as much screen time as John Gielgud had in the same role in the miniseries.
