"Ful-philling" vs "a sinking feeling"

These reviews don't seem to be up on the web; I found them by misusing my university library access. The full text is up at the EhleNews Yahoo group.

From The Sun:
Jennifer Ehle, an award-winner for TV's Pride And Prejudice, also follows in illustrious footsteps as the spoilt Tracy -the role was written for Katharine Hepburn. But Jennifer, although as waspish as Kate in the delivery of some lacerating put-downs, wisely sets out to make the part her own as Tracy learns about humility.

The Independent on Sunday is a tad more critical:
Jennifer Ehle"s sorely disappointing Tracy sounds as if she's got a mouthful of Copydex. She is luminously beautiful and, I think, means to look statuesque, but the effect is desperately wooden. The sexual chemistry is non-existent.
