    Beautiful scenery. As for the rest of the movie it was a waste of time. No character development. Yes, we understand the mother was overbearing and the children hated her. So why not leave! Just awful.

    Choppy and disjointed, and painfully long.

    This movie was an abomination. It was soooooo long and boring. The story made absolutely no sense. It went on and on and could have ended a million times. Just a waste of money and time.

    Someone gave this a perfect score of 10 like in Gone With The Wind? OK my score is zero because this is a snoozefest of epic proportions. There is nothing to like about this movie as the story is disjointed and way too long. Boring.

    Terrible long drawn out movie. The story went nowhere. Can't believe anyone liked this trash.

  1. Although it has its involving moments, the watered-down Waugh fails to make any kind of lasting connection.

    Offers lush and compelling drama drawn from Evelyn Waugh's beloved novel. Purists may blanch at the screenplay's changes to the source material's narrative fine points, but its spirit survives intact.

    The remarkable thing about Jarrold's movie is how much of the book it manages to capture.
