Really good movie that was made for TV
22 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is really really good- would like to know where I can buy or rent it. Even when I started figuring out what was going on, I still had to see how it ended up. I didn't guess the ending entirely. It is definitely worth the time. I think that it is better than Atonement, and that Bonham Carter did an outstanding job with her role. I don't want to tell anything about the movie and I am just trying to get in the minimum 10 lines. I couldn't remember what the title of the movie was so I went to the Masterpiece Theatre website and saw all of these other titles that reminded me of more really great movies. If anyone knows where I can buy some of the older ones, please leave me a msg. I especially would like to watch "To Play the King" again, and "The Politician's Wife"- the show that is on CBS is based in part on that movie, I think.
