Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (out Feb 27) is based on a television show which is based on a book series. Set in the 1920s, it revolves around a woman who is best described as part detective, part socialite. I realise I’m new to these characters and the film is pitched at existing fans but, in giving an honest appraisal, I’m struggling to see the fuss. I liked the production values but they're not enough to overcome the dull dialogue and ham-fisted premise. Grade: C+.
