About the Movie
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.
Rotten: It walks the line between romantic piety and utter tastelessness, opting to be a cheap potboiler only after it's run out of ways to seem profound.
Rotten: It flutters around fitfully, still filled with air, then falls in a deflated heap in the corner.
Fresh: Does a fine job of slowly racheting up the psychological tension.
GREAT MOVIE TO SEE!
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 great novel. A dreadful film. Nonsensical and suffocating.
