I have seen this film more than once, and the first time I saw it, I was extremely pleased. The movie contains so many emotions. The acting was absolutely brilliant. Tom Hiddleston is such an under-rated actor. He's phenomenal, and I hope to see him a lot in the future. Rachel Weisz performance was beautiful. The emotions she portrayed were extremely realistic.
The music throughout the film was actually quite intelligent. It captured you, and let out emotions as it played during the scenes. I enjoyed every piece of music that was used in this film, especially when they're singing in the bars.
The chemistry Tom and Rachel had was brilliant. They seemed so comfortable with each other, and that just lead the film, and it made it so believable.
I have given this film 10 out of 10 for obvious reasons. I highly recommend this film if you enjoy movies with an excellent storyline, and amazing acting, excellent crew and directing.
