Nahh, with so many things going against it you should give it a shot just to see if it surprises you. Then you can have a great story to tell.
Gotta say, I started watching the trailer expecting to be disappointed, but I wasn't. The cast actually look good, Mulligan standing out (I think she's headed to the Oscars with this role) and the art direction really dazzling a la Moulin Rouge.
I'm gonna read the book before the film, it's one of those classics that escaped me.
But yeah, this actually looks pretty good
I still give it a 50/50 on failing.
