n the car trouble scene with the MGA, the script should have read, "you'll run down the battery". It is doubtful a driver could directly "flood the engine" of any MG, or other Brit of this vintage or earlier, and likely later. The twin carburetors are constant velocity SUs, not Rochester Quads. You can flood the engine attached to a Rochester by pumping the gas pedal. Constant velocity carburetors like these, having no accelerator pump, cannot flood the engine unless there is an internal fault with the carburetors. See more »

The acting in this I cannot fault, though Adeline has a very low range of emotions given the material, her demure persona is a sign of the times in which she was raised. Perhaps it was the stiff upper lip if the early 20th century? I have never seen the male lead and he suited his part well.
I watched this with my mother and daughters ( sobbing continued on both sides with both generations for different reasons, but both centred around loss). I felt torn, suitably watching this with both generations, as to what part of the film affected me most. Those with children and aging parents will understand when viewing this.
The soundtrack was beautiful and the song played during the most emotive scenes is both beautiful and haunting enough for me to seek it out.
A beautiful movie, which is a little in the fantasy realm in its explanation behind the mortality/immortality aspect which makes it almost fairy tale like, but beautifully executed, and gorgeously told. See it with your mother or daughter, or like I did, both! Take your tissues!
