Trivia

Rowan Joffe originally had no interest in doing a remake of the original but conceded that he would re-read the novel. In doing so, he fell in love with the character of Rose and really wanted to make a version that showcased her. See more »

Goofs

Rose lives in a shabby tower block, run down due to many years of neglect - however, the film is set in 1964 when the building would still have been quite new. See more »

Gripping, drama, very well acted.
5 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not good at long reviews but I didn't see the original or read the book. Therefore I am judging this as a movie in itself rather than comparing it to the original. I thought it was excellent, the drab interiors, the plain simplicity of Rose, so well acted and the sadness in her innocence, all made this quite emotional for me. Helen Mirren was a delight to the eye, so beautiful, wrinkles and all. No cosmetic surgery there. I think they did a good job of making Brighton 1960s and sensibly only showed one CGI shot of the West pier, rather than trying to re-create what it looked like. It held my attention throughout and I very nearly cried at the end. Sad its getting bad reviews. Perhaps it was too British for some people.
