Quotes

Caroline: Adam, do you like life?
Adam: [chuckles] Well, I wouldn't like to live forever. But um, for a little while, yes, but... yes, I like it.
Caroline: But living here? You wouldn't rather be somewhere else, New York, London?
Adam: No.
Caroline: Why not?
Adam: Because you have to care about - or at least pretend to care about everything: politics, fashion, culture. It's just exhausting.
Caroline: What I wouldn't give to see some new painters, a new play, go to the opera... Yes, I know. "To Moscow, Olga."
Adam: Yeah.

Marvellous Film
6 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Last night I saw this film for the second time, and it was even better than when I first saw it 4 days ago. I loved everything about it. Laura Linney is amazing, and every member of the cast does a fantastic job. Locations are breathtaking. Screenplay, Music, Acting, Editing.... I can't find a single thing to criticize about this movie.

Laura Linney deserves an Oscar for her performance. Anthony Hopkins gives the kind of performance we are accustomed to seeing from him. Other cast members are less well known, but every character is perfectly cast. Apparently this film will have a very short run in Los Angeles and other cities, so I recommend you don't miss a chance to see it.
