Let me give you a case: Jack loves Jill, Jill loves Jack. But Jack doesn't love Jill in the same way. Jack never asked to be loved.
And what about Jill?
That's Jill's hard luck! I can't be bloody Romeo all the time!

Masterfully told, with fantastic acting from Rachel Weisz, the film tells the story of Hester and ill-fated love affair with Freddie Page. The characters were well developed, especially Hester. Her performance told perfectly of the crushing depression and desperation her character was supposed to be feeling. Tom Hiddleston, probably one of the nicest people ever, wonderfully portrays the bitter, jaded air force captain. It is difficult to watch this film without feeling sorry for, or falling in love with at least one of the characters. They have really been brought to life. For a movie that just came out last year, "The Deep Blue Sea" has the feel and tone of a much older movie. If you can deal with the slow pace, it is a must see.
