In this Showtime miniseries remake of the 1968 masterpiece, Close and Stewart gracefully, if not quite as joyously, inhabit the lead roles made classic by Hepburn and O'Toole. Using Goldman's screenplay, Konchalovsky's presentation is admirably true to its source, and the scenery in Hungary and Slovakia splendidly suits the subject. Certainly an excellent effort by a talented cast and crew, but it won't dethrone its predecessor.
