  1. 80
    Lush, even juicy entertainment.
  2. Cate Blanchett has the title role, and she does wonders with it, bringing a degree of passion but also suggesting something essentially unevolved in Charlotte's character.
  3. This is a movie that, for all its often high intelligence and skill, seems emotionally underdone, bogged down in tony literary and cinematic cliches.
  4. It's ultimately just numb, a sober wartime romance roused only by Blanchett's intensity and Crudup's passionate swings between righteous anger and moral zeal. The rest is just tired melodrama.
  5. 50
    Director Gillian Armstrong drains all the emotional energy out of the people who dot her movie's lovely landscape.
  6. Undone by Blanchett's dull, wooden delivery. She's the pap that kills the pulp the rest of the film is bellowing out to be.
  7. 20
    Director Gillian Armstrong turns Sebastian Faulks' pungent novel about World War II into a soporific.
