While his family have fallen on hard times, the murderer - known as The Duke (Derek Jacobi - Day of the Jackal; Gosford Park; Tv's- I Claudius) - has become rich, p Written by Anonymous

Fabulous
24 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

The acting is tremendous, the dialogue is delivered with such ease and intensity, and where there is caddiness-- it is intentional. This movie is visually beautiful and unapologetic; it does not bore you with tedious dialogue, but challenges the audience to mesh both Jacobean language with a modern day setting. Other movies have tried to accomplish this time fold, attempting to 'modernize' what they consider to be classics, but other movies did not have Christopher Eccleston and Eddie Izzard. There performances deserved more credit than the average moviegoer could afford. See this movie.
