Well Worth Seeing
7 November 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

There is nothing so disappointing as getting a movie version of a novel you like only to find out the story has been changed substantially and the cinematic version is horrid. I am a new fan of Ackerley. I am pleased to say the movie follows the novel and it was a delight to see it come to life in the screen version. Everyone in the cast is outstanding and the plot moves along quickly so the viewer is never bored. I would not hesitate to recommend this movie to anyone who admires J.R. Ackerley. I even enjoyed the fact that the look and feel of the movie seem dated which helped transport me back pretty close to the time it was supposed to happen.
