Being a fan of romantic drama films, I really did not enjoy this one. Monotonic dialogues, static and unvaried scenes, no expressed emotional flux, no background audio and, most importantly, with all the supposed emotional connection between Camille and Sullivan, I did not feel the connection or the harmony at all between both in any scene, even in the most supposedly-intimate scenes, neither did I feel any involvement throughout the film. On the contrary, I felt angry at some scenes. At some point dialogues were more of reading than acting. Part of the plot was good but poorly acted. I wouldn't recommend it for those looking for a good romantic drama film.
