What a disappointment
11 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With such a great cast – Bill Travers, Virginia McKenna and Alexander Knox – and an interesting setting and locale, a private school in Jamaica, this movie should be a winner, right? It is, in fact, a stinker. Douglas Lockwood (Travers) is a gifted teacher at Leonard Pawley's (Knox) school. Pawley's wife (Mitchell) openly pursues Lockwood to the apparent work obsessed indifference of Pawley. Lockwood and his students witness the crash of a small plane in which the pilot is killed but Judy Waring (McKenna) survives. Lockwood then meets Waring in the hospital and their affair begins soon after. Waring is a needy, shallow woman who vacillates between Lockwood and her former lover, a married Argentinean. Lockwood, who seems to be in a daze most of the time, is also trying to help a seriously emotionally disturbed student, Sylvia. For me, all the characters were either uninteresting, unlikable, or both. The Sylvia role was quite large but didn't seem to fit in with rest of the movie other than as a sad and pathetic distraction. I don't regret spending time watching this movie but I certainly won't waste my time watching it again.
