Plot Summary

Joe (Daniel Craig, Road to Perdition) is an accomplished writer and professor whose rational life is thrust into a downward spiral of guilt after witnessing a freak, fatal ballooning accident while picnicking with girlfriend Claire (Samantha Morton, Minority Report). Jed (Rhys Ifans, Notting Hill), another man involved in that fateful day, seeks out Joe looking for consolation and a way to make sense of this tragedy they’ve both witnessed. Jed soon becomes as inescapable to Joe as his guilt, and both men find themselves hurtling towards a final, terrifying choice driven by the destructive nature of obsession or the true endurance of love. Based on the acclaimed novel by Ian McEwan, Enduring Love is a psychological thriller about how fate shapes our relationships, how accidents can change our lives forever and how meaning is unraveled from sheer chaos.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The movie's ace in the hole is Rhys Ifans, whose scraggly looks and ability to play daft make him perfect as the delusional Jed. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Does a fine job of slowly racheting up the psychological tension. – Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle, Jul 21, 2005

Rotten: Filmmaker Roger Michell doesn't so much adapt Ian McEwan's fine novel Enduring Love, a surgically precise anatomy of romance and obsession, as eviscerate it and wave its entrails before the audience. – Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's heady stuff, though stretched too far for convenience. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

This is such a great movie. It's heartfelt without being to over the top. Daniel Craig plays this role perfectly. You should definitley see it!

a character study

v interesting and well done

Almost great

Starts out as a taut psychological drama about a group of people who have come to share in a trauma after a ballooning accident. Great acting by the principal characters and well paced narrative. Unfortunately the last third of the movie seems to degenerate into a genre cliche about obsessive stalkers whose uncontrolled attraction inevitably turns violent. Could've been great.
