Review this movie
Feb 19, 2011This is a film I can watch again and again. Billy Crudup and Claire Danes are both
tremendously talented and this film is a great vehicle for them. Their chemistry is real
(intense and sizzling). Both these Yanks pull of the British accents with ease. The story is interesting,
the pace is quick, the music is well chosen and the supporting cast is excellent. I like the ambiguous ending but have no doubt that Maria's great love will save Ned.… Expand
It's a marvelous premise, and Crudup's serpentine performance has a venomous grace. But Jeffrey Hatcher's screenplay too often sacrifices psychological insight for bogus theatricality.
