I knew I wouldn't like the film as much as the novel, which was so intelligently written. But other than the fact that the casting was somewhat off (in the book, the age difference is not so very noticeable and the relationship is much more believable) I have to say I was glued to the screen. I admit there were some lame lines of dialogue that the author of the novel wouldn't have written, but it was just so good to see a smart and intelligent film (my God, they quoted Yeats!) on TV that I loved it. And Jacqueline Bisset just gets more beautiful and talented as time goes on. We need more roles like this one for actresses over forty.
