Quotes

Roger Braithwaite: They say that murderers are drawn to the second-hand. There's a theory that murder is characteristically committed by people who handle other people's things... in second-hand clothes shops, junk shops, markets.
Roger Braithwaite: Self improvement, that's another hallmark. People who teach themselves things at home, at night... theories they only half understand. Informal education- a fantasy life of singular intensity

What a shame.
10 October 2012 | by (Victoria, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

The cover looks very promising. Unfortunately it fails to deliver despite having an exceptional cast. Incredibly boring and annoying. Had to stop watching it half way through, and I'm a die hard film fan. I am willing to give movies more than a decent chance to prove themselves. Why it fails? the deadly slow pace, the meandering/chopping back and forth between the two plots. The feeling that the movie is going nowhere and will leave you wondering why you bothered. Truly Vanessa Redgrave is always a good bet which is why I chose it, together with the fact that her daughter (Joely Richardson)is in it spurred me on. The premise is a good one, but the lack of momentum is excruciating. Ian Holm, Tom Wilkinson, Judi Dench, are all playing their roles adequately. What a shame.
