  1. Beautifully acted and written so its themes are touched upon glancingly rather than with full force.

    Monica Ali's elegant and critically trumpeted debut novel, Brick Lane, about the travails, conflicting emotions and quiet liberation of a Muslim woman in London, is a far lesser thing in its bigscreen transformation.

    Absorbing enough, moving enough, and visually attractive enough to provide a perfectly acceptable night out at the movies.
