Born into the lower class, Becky can rely only on her wit, guile, and sexuality as she makes her way up through London society circa 1820, alongside her best friend Amelia. As the two heroines make their way through the tawdry glamour of Regency society, battles—military and domestic—are fought, fortunes made and lost.In addition to the complete screenplay by Oscar®-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) and Matthew Faulk & Mark Skeet (NBCs Jason and the Argonauts), this Newmarket Pictorial Moviebook features over 150 full-color illustrations, extracts from Thackerays novel, interviews with the cast and crew, notes by director Mira Nair, and sidebars on the films costume, set, and production design. 150 color photos.
