Corrine (Victoria Tennant) vs Corrine (Heather Graham)
Victoria Tennant never convinced me that she was ever the young girl who flew caution and family to the wind in order to be with her forbidden love (who happened to be her uncle). Tennant has a certain cold, calculated “britishness” for lack of a better word so the idea of her being so passionate and romance novel in love with anyone just seemed like a stretch. However that cold calculation was perfect for the role of a manipulative, selfish shrew who would abuse ( and ultimately try to kill) her children for a chance at a fortune.
Heather Graham was just so one note. She seemed to be giving the exact same range of emotion whether it was mourning her husband, submitting to her evil mother, abandoning her children, or sucking up to her rich father. She did look the part though.
