A lovely and well-acted film.
21 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Great work by the whole cast; definitely a character piece, and set against a lovely backdrop. Hattie Morahan is luminous at times in this coming-of-age story about a fifteen-year-old English girl in India, and Naveen Andrews does a great job playing a handsome, self-absorbed poet.
