In Nick Dear's script, Lady Russell takes on the aspect of a wicked witch of the west. I believe that McGrath is good man with all the right intentions, but he misunderstands the true nature of Jane Austen's work. There aren't many good performances in the film but there are a few; Anna Massey is superb as Aunt Norris, and Jackie Smith-Wood does an excellent job as Mary Crawford.
