Casting not the only issue, but it's a big one.
As other reviewers have already mentioned the glaring casting errors, accent and general acting (or lack there of), I can't believe the production mistakes that got through. 1. Jane was clearly shot in through the left side of her chest, not through the heart as Nicholl stated. 2. When Beauvoir requested Gamache's weapon and badge, Gamache handed him the gun with the barrel pointing right at him. Procedure would have been to turn the gun and hand it over by the grip. 3. Ruth and Jane hardly looked like they could have been classmates. Ruth was at least well-cast even if poorly written. If there is ever a 2nd film I hope they do better in every aspect.
