Adapted from the novel by Sarah Waters.

London, 1862, a young orphan named Susan Trinder (Sally Hawkins) grows up amongst the petty thieves known as Fingersmiths, under the guidance of Mrs Suckerby (Imelda Staunton). One evening, Richard 'The Gentleman' Rivers (Rupert Evans) pays them a visit. Rivers has an elaborate plan to defraud the wealthy heiress, Maud Lilly (Elaine Cassidy). Susan agrees to help for a cut of the money, and is quickly installed as Maud's maid. Upon arriving, she discovers that Maud is virtually a prisoner in her own house, as Uncle Christopher (Charles Dance) controls every detail of her life. As the plan begins to unfold, Susan finds herself developing an intimate relationship with the lady of the house...

i had already seen "tipping the velvet" which was just amazing so when i seen this on dvd i had to purchase.i certainly was not disappointed,what a beautiful story and so well acted,the instant attraction between the two women and the story right to the end was gripping.sarah waters has to be one of the finest british writers,her victorian tales are the best...

 FANTASTIC

Beautifully acted and brilliantly adapted, this will have you hooked in from the beginning. Its split into parts, so taking a break over the three hours isnt a problem, and the price is just unbelievable. Sarah waters at her best, this film is absolutely brilliant.
