Scorsese's "Age of Innocence" passes muster

In an interesting post-Oscars article in The Guardian, Salman Rushdie discusses success and failure in adapting novels into films. Not many examples of success are cited, but one is indeed the Martin Scorsese adaptation of "The Age of Innocence". The article is quite long, but it is worth finishing, if only for the use of the word "windbaggery" to describe a certain author's prose style (not Mrs. Wharton's, of course!)
