In a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having, no-one is more determined to climb to the heights of English Society than Miss Rebecca Sharp. Olivia Cooke and Claudia Jessie star as Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley respectively in ITVs reimagining of William Makepeace Thackeray’s classic Victorian drama.
After being dismissed from her job and with no home, prospects or family to fall back on, Becky Sharp finds herself at the mercy of stranger’s generosity when she is taken in by the daughter of a stock-broker, Amelia Sedley.
Determined to make a better tomorrow for herself, Becky begins to hatch a plan to woo Amelia’s wealthy, oafish brother into proposing marriage but soon finds herself embroiled in the politics, dramas and romances of Victorian high-society.
