Excellent Movie with Twists
7 December 2002 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

This was the first movie I saw with Kenneth Branaugh and Emma Thompson and I loved their on-screen chemistry. LOVED the movie! If you have not seen it, rent it. I had never heard of it and rented it. Lots of plot twists and the love story is unique. I felt very connected to the characters - good character development. Fun little mystery, too.
