Did not know where this one was heading. Interesting story, maybe a little long. But very watchable
In Victorian London, the orphaned Sue Trinder is raised by Mrs. Sucksby, den mother to a family of thieves, or "fingersmiths."
To repay Mrs. Sucksby's kindness, Sue gets involved in a scam but soon regrets it. Fingersmith is the next slice of engrossing lesbian Victoriana from Sarah Waters (Tipping The Velvet).
This hypnotic suspense drama, based upon the book of the same name, is awash with all manner of gloomy Dickensian leitmotifs: pickpockets, orphans, grim prisons, lunatic asylums, "laughing villains," and, of course, "stolen fortunes and girls made out to be mad."
