Great pairing of Young and Lamarr
19 September 2002 | by (Raleigh, NC USA) – See all my reviews

Robert Young and Hedy Lamarr are great together in this period piece about a young man bound by his society upbringing and the exciting modern woman who breaks all the molds he has carefully preserved. The dynamic between the pull of family obligation and the inner longing to be free in Young is wonderfully portrayed.
