Vanity Fair is a 2004 British-American costume drama film directed by Mira Nair and adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's novel of the same name. The novel has been the subject of numerous television and film adaptations, and Nair's version made notable changes in the development of main character Becky Sharp.
The film was nominated for "Golden Lion" Award in 2004 Venice Film Festival.
The story opens in London, in the year of 1802. The mysterious Lord Steyne (Gabriel Byrne) makes his way to a painter's studio where he has agreed to buy a painting of a young woman. The young Becky Sharp (Angelica Mandy), then a girl of ten, insists on having ten guineas, instead of four guineas, as the price of the painting. The painter explains that model in the painting is Becky's mother, the painter's late wife. Steyne agrees to pay the higher amount and leaves with the painting. The young Becky is then seen moving to Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies, after her father dies.
