Slow, but worth it
12 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie requires some patience. We can see that Margaret is torn between the heat and sensuality of Egypt and the chilly convention of England, but what is causing her listless progress towards a wedding with someone she clearly does not love? Is it the result of religious guilt over her own repressed desires? Is she on the rebound from an implied failed romance in the past? Or is it something more serious? During the film, she grows increasingly reluctant to marry her rather repellent fiancé. But if she doesn't marry him, what should she do instead?

Eventually, our questions are answered--and so are Margaret's.
