Elizabeth Malet: [holds Wilmont as he weeps] I’ve been told that the Devil is in you. If that be so, then I know how he made his entrance.
Elizabeth Malet: You abducted me in a coach like this when I was still a virgin heiress.
Rochester: And did you like abduction?
Elizabeth Malet: Passionately.
Elizabeth Malet: Is the fault mine? If I were a better wife would you not need the whorehouse and the inn?
Rochester: Every man needs the whorehouse and the inn.
“For those who can stick with it, the rewards are considerable.”
–Sheri Linden , The Hollywood Reporter
“The second half, especially, grows dour and maundering, and by the end the movie seems to flail in desperation, more like a work in progress than like a finished piece.”
–Anthony Lane, New Yorker
• Filming took only 45 days.
• Unlike most period films, this one was shot almost entirely with a hand-held camera. The two most notable shots with a fixed camera (not a hand held one) are the two panoramas of the interior of the theater, which was intentional.
