Grab those matchsticks and prop those eyelids open for an hour until snippets of plot materialize. Afterwards, in this instance, it's Henry James' expose' of lies feeding on lies to generate convoluted and narcississtically boring inductess for the Arrested Development Club. Well done and finely textured after all, but ending with a big fat So What. The Combination of Merchant Ivory art feel for its own sake and James' absence of fully formed adults is sominex for both the contemporarily disposed and culturally astute. Expand

I walked out of this movie when Uma Thurman was giving another one of her tantrums. Enough is enough! She is one of the biggest non-talents in the movies today, and I don't understand how she continues to be hired.

The morés of that era demand the emotional subleties and restraints portrayed in the film and those who do not appreciate the formality of that era will probably find this movie less than engrossing. Apart from this, the movie was beautifully made and in itself makes this movie worth viewing. Expand

Beautiful, but story could have been told in about 20 minutes.
