Fresh: This morally ambiguous tale of dangerous liaisons and bewildering choices amounts to one of the year's most intriguing dramas. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It's as grown-up as a movie can get, with a fine cast in a strongly crafted tale about the calamities that can wreck a relationship and the love that can redeem it. – Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Oct 29, 2005

Fresh: As always, Fellowes has a pitch-perfect ear for British diction. – Michael Booth, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A tight little film that's so painfully civil it makes you want to slap the characters around, which may be the point. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

Great Movie

Truly incredible cinematography and like Gosford Park, doesn't move like a speeding bullet but gives you time to consider what you would do if faced with the same dilemma.
And, I bought it and love watching it again when I need to think through my own life.


This movie is a best kept secret. A beautiful young wife has a torrid affair--with a murder/cover-up and a twist!
Every performance is exceptional. I saw this movie a couple of years ago at a foreign film theatre--and have been searching for it ever since.
Buy It!

Very recommended - An adult love story done well!

What an enjoyable movie to watch! Great, mature love story that embraces real-life events in an English society. I actually liked how in-control the characters were - not so exaggerated or put to the extremes like in most movies. I would have only liked it better if they would have included some classy intimate scenes as I think it would have added more depth to the emotional aspect.
