Brendan Fraser is terrific, and the film won over 30 awards.
Any film that has won over 30 awards must be respected. It is indeed a very good film, although the story line is deep and psychologically heavy so it is not everyone's cup of tea (or "everyone's tea cup" as the foreign maid played by Lynn Redgrave said in the film). Due credit must be given for a credible script and the story itself, based on truth although fictionalized as per the gardener's relationship with director Whale.
Brendan Fraser proves himself to be an excellent actor. We will no doubt see a lot more of him in leading roles.
Unbelievable that best-actor-Oscar-winner Ian McKellen was only 59 years old. He must be a smoker!
If you are a serious film buff, see it. It has lots of depth.
