Vanity Fair

Available on Prime Video
Set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, this adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s 19th-century literary classic stars Olivia Cooke as orphan Becky Sharp, who sets out to claw her way to the top of English society. Her guile, calculation, and opportunism get her there, if only briefly and with scant regard to those who get hurt along the way. “The cast is terrific”—The Times.
Starring Olivia Cooke, Michael Palin, Johnny Flynn
