Vanity Fair (2018)
Tuesday 4th September 2018
In a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having, orphan Becky Sharp (Olivia Cooke) sets out to claw her way to the top of English society.
Written by Gwyneth Hughes (Dark Angel, The Girl, Miss Austen Regrets) and co-produced by leading production companies Mammoth Screen (Victoria and Poldark) and Amazon Studios, Olivia Cooke - star of Steven Spielberg's forthcoming film Ready Player One - plays Thackeray's timeless heroine Becky Sharp.

Her story of "villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting and dancing" takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.
