2004
 
Becky Sharp (Reese Witherspoon) is a lower-class girl who uses her considerable wit to climb her way up the precipitous ladder of 1820s London society in this faithful film version of William Makepeace Thackeray's famous novel. But it's not easy for Becky, who, when circumstances dictate, must become a governess at a remote country house, where she's courted in turn by an elderly lord and his roguish son (James Purefoy).

Reasonably well acted and written, though I can't say I particularly enjoyed it. Sort of a sad story of a girl trying to break through the social stratum in 1800's England
