Us Rating: ** 1/2

Kate Winslet dominates this version of the classic novel as a single mother who spoils her bad-seed daughter (played in grown-up vixen form by Evan Rachel Wood) and regrets it. The back-and-forth drama can get ponderous and laughably lurid. As for Winslet, she's committed but doesn't quite nail the emotion. (HBO, $40)
