Nothing like the other reviewer stated
11 January 2010 | by recklessronSee all my reviews

Geez, I read the review by emuir-1 and almost passed on this movie.

That would have been a bad mistake.

All the points made, that illustrated flaws in the movie, were based on ignorance.

First, there is a word 'demure' that apparently isn't in that reviewer's vocabulary along with a historical understanding of its meaning.

Ladies of that time period did not look directly at a gentleman's face for very long.

Politically correct? Nope. Reality? Yes.

And the joke about bad breath shows extreme ignorance. The tooth brush had yet to be invented. Shakespeare wrote of the 'sweet breath of youth' which refers to the fact that people who didn't have ANY oral hygiene regime had rotting teeth and EVERY adult had a mouth that smelled like a sewer. So she wouldn't have been faking - not wanting to be so close as to breathe in his breath. Lastly, I saw NO scenes where she is playing to the camera instead of acting her part – she just doesn't stare lovingly into his eyes while looking him square in the face.

While this might not go down in history as the best movie ever made I found all of the criticisms to be unjustified.
