BELOVED (1998)
A faithful adaptation of Toni Morrison's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Set in Cincinnati just after the Civil War a tormented ex-slave strugglies to come to terms with her past. Danny Glover is the old friend who reappears to help Sethe in her quest for inner peace, but it's the spooky arrival of the ethereal Beloved (Thandie Newton), which may finally allow Sethe to lay her ghosts to rest. Beautifully made, if a little laboured.
