Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula has the sumptuous gothic visuals and gloomy, candlelit atmosphere you have in your head when you’re reading the book. Keanu Reeves’ English accent in the role of Jonathan Harker was slammed by many critics, some of whom thought the performance as a
whole was also weak. But anyone’s performance is going to look weak next to Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins.
Reeves does a fine job and, as always, he’s engaging in the role. According to Winona Ryder, an actual Romanian priest was brought in for the wedding scene and he didn’t really understand what was going on, so she and Keanu Reeves might actually be married in real life.
