Extremely well acted but slow moving!
I felt that Ethan Frome was EXTREMELY well acted by all; however, this bleak, depressing drama was very slow moving and lacked intensity which I think would have added to the romantic plot. More development between the characters in the love triangle would have been effective. Costumes, scenery and characters were all very authentic. Just wish it could have been more of an emotional picture.
