      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: C Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Globe and Mail Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 12, 2002 Full Review Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 3/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot Moll Flanders is an admirable effort but still a bit difficult to sit through. Rated: 3/4 Mar 2, 2022 Full Review Brian D. Johnson Maclean's Magazine The movie takes Moll's name, but mollifies her spirit. Mar 22, 2019 Full Review Jane Horwitz South Florida Sun-Sentinel The plot hinges on rather too much coincidence, and some lines of the British-accented dialogue garble on the soundtrack, but the film offers charming performances and a vivid sense of time, place and human dignity.

      Audience Member The tale is lengthy and hard to fit into a film - but young Wright does a solid job of telling the story of Moll who escapes prostitution to become a mother. The hardest part is watching Rizzo from Grease work as her pimp. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Frances H absolutely nothing like the Daniel Defoe classic and parts are not bad, but the rest is boring. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/04/20 Full Review Audience Member Moving accurate fascinating, Robin Wright and Morgan Freeman bond valid everytime A thosand times better than EVERY Les Miserables I 've ever seen Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I really loved this movie..I hope it comes available on Flixster or Vudu soon!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member i loved this movie both today and when it first came out Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member A complete waste of time. The movie is NOT the story of Moll Flanders in any form other than using her name. Dont watch it if you read the book... Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
