Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This morally ambiguous tale of dangerous liaisons and bewildering choices amounts to one of the year's most intriguing dramas.
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.
Fresh: As always, Fellowes has a pitch-perfect ear for British diction.
Rotten: A tight little film that's so painfully civil it makes you want to slap the characters around, which may be the point.
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.
EXCEPTIONAL FILM NOIR--BUY IT
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.
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.
