About Mary Reilly

Mary Reilly, the 1996 film adaptation of the novel by Valerie Martin, is a haunting and atmospheric retelling of the classic story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Directed by Stephen Frears and starring Julia Roberts and John Malkovich, the film explores the dark and twisted relationship between a maid and her employer, a brilliant but troubled doctor.

Roberts delivers a stunning performance as Mary Reilly, a quiet and reserved maid who becomes drawn into the world of Dr. Jekyll (Malkovich) and his sinister alter ego, Mr. Hyde. Malkovich is equally impressive, bringing a sense of menace and madness to his portrayal of the doctor.

The film is beautifully shot, with a moody and atmospheric visual style that perfectly captures the dark and brooding tone of the story. The production design and costumes are also top-notch, transporting viewers back to Victorian-era London with stunning attention to detail.

While the film received mixed reviews upon its release, it has since gained a cult following among fans of Gothic horror and period dramas. It is a haunting and atmospheric film that is sure to leave a lasting impression on viewers.
