Synopsis

An astonishing tour de force...Not only does it give us a fresh take on the famous Dr. Jekyll and the infamous Mr. Hyde; it also allows us backstairs into the shadowy Victorian world of devoted servants and the festering slums they have gone into service to escape. Mary Reilly is both a tense drama--an authentically detailed historical novel--and a remarkable psychological portrait of an unusual and very sympathetic woman.
