Description

In a culture obsessed with status, Becky Sharp---beautiful, clever and poor---is determined to earn her place in society. Her childhood friend, Amelia Sedley, enjoys the privileges Becky lacks, little realizing how fickle these blessings can be. From posh London ballrooms and country estates to the battlefield at Waterloo, they pursue love and fortune in the self-absorbed world of the British upper crust. While the delightfully amoral Becky manipulates the men around her. Amelia's innocence and the vagaries of fate leave her at the mercy of others. Brilliantly adapted by Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice) from William Makepeace Thackeray's masterpiece, Vanity Fair faithfully preserves the bon mots and stinging satire that has made the novel one of the enduring classics of English literature.

- Adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's novel by Andrew Davies, writer of A & E's best-selling Pride and Prejudice.
