Though inspired from a highly acclaimed novel, this movie is relatively less publicized and that might be one reason for not being known to many.
Two deepest of human emotions, love and betrayal are depicted in a subtle fashion in this movie. Cinematography and direction are good. Screenplay is slow in later half, yet gripping over all. Certain scenes sure will have a haunting affect on you.
Mulligan's acting is solid. Knighley's emotional performance is intense. But above all, I believe it's Garfield who stole the show, in the role of an isolated, confused and struggling boy.
I would say...Watch this movie with little expectations, you won't be disappointed.
