Re: Turn of the Screw
- Shelle & those who've seen Turn of the Screw:
Just watched this on tape & having only ever seen the
Deborah Kerr version, (definitely a Hollywood happy
ending) the ending was quite a shock.
I kept thinking the scene would reverse itself & turn
out to be different right up until the credits rolled.
I too wasn't prepared for Jodhi May's portrayal of the
governess. She seemed on the edge from the very
beginning, overreacting to the slightest things & I'm
not sure the "evil" of the children & their ghostly
connections was really shown in enough detail for her
to react as she did.
Re Peter Quint - it seemed to me that his
disappearance preceded what happened to Miles, so I
guess we are to believe that despite his release
there, he still wasn't safe in the hands of his
'protector'. Very disturbing, but well done.
