A wonderful and heartbreaking film: Rachel Weisz proves once again to be the best actress of her generation.
24 March 2012 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

Deep and heartbreaking look at a woman's fight for inner freedom is a real treat to see. Rachel Weisz and Terrence Davis create a dark fable about desire and expectations with Weisz once again proving to be the best actress of her generation with a tour de force performance that will dazzle and stay with you after the film is over. Tom Hiddleston is great as her object of desire and Simon Russell Beale is great as her husband. It's a bit stagy in some area but once you get passed it it's carries you in its current. Giving you an understanding of a time and place where desire and lust was forbidden.

A true classic in the making:)
