Sir Ernest Shackleton: Miss Stancombe Wills, I don't know how to thank you.
Janet Stancombe Wills: By succeeding, of course. And perhaps by addressing me in future as Janet.

Brilliant!
5 May 2002 | by (the North, England) – See all my reviews

This was a great film, showing all of Shackleton's bravery and courage even in the face of death itself. Kenneth Branagh was acting brilliantly (as usual), and the scene in the snowstorm (ok- one of the MANY scenes in the snowstorm!) left me with tears in my eyes. A great film about a great man! :-)
