Trivia

Ellen Burstyn's character, "Georgiana Carr," bears the last name of an actual Durham, N.C., family that was prominent in the tobacco business. The large portrait in her house, showing a uniformed man with a big white mustache, is a picture of Julian Shakespeare Carr (1845-1924), one of Durham's earliest tobacco magnates, who was involved in a variety of other business enterprises and was a highly regarded philanthropist. The portrait normally resides in the North Carolina Collection of the Durham County Public Library. See more »

Quotes

Harris Parker: This city like many in America, has come to a rough moment in its history. A city after all is just a collection of houses and buildings, hopes and dreams that depend on the fortune and determination and fate of its residents. The future, uncertain at best can be fearful or full of promise. It's all in how you see it..."

Did I miss something?
15 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

I waited and waited for the plot to develop - to no avail. There seemed to be no point to this film; no in depth character development and more disappointedly, no story. Colin Firth, undoubtedly a superb actor where quintessential English characterisation is required, is appalling when cast as an American. His accent is shocking and comparable only to Dick Van Dyke's cockney accent in Mary Poppins!

The world has some brilliant English actors, and some brilliant American actors. Why does the industry insist on using UK actors to depict US characters and vice versa?

An absolute waste of time.
