Mary Reilly | 1996 | R | - 3.7.1

Julia Roberts and John Malkovich redo the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde story as seen through the eyes of housemaid Mary Reilly.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A couple of passionate kisses and sexual innuendo. A line drawing of a male organ. A prostitute is shown with her arms over her naked breasts. A man rips off a woman's nightgown and licks her back.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A child is beaten (we only see shadows and hear screams). The child is then put in a closet with a rat. A child is kicked and stomped and blood is shown on her torso. A man breaks a teacup and has a bloody gash on his hand; he pulls out a shard of glass with his teeth. A room is drenched in blood. An eel is hacked to death, bloody animal carcasses and organs, blood on a table. A man is holding a woman's decapitated head with blood dripping from it. A man chases a woman. A man is beaten in the face and head with a cane.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
