Awful
7 May 2017 | by MinnieSee all my reviews

One of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. Apart from the pretty sets - it is awful! With a bad script, poor acting, poor Casting. Even quoting Emily Dickinson does not save this movie or make this watchable. I am surprised Jennifer Ehle agreed to act in this. The rest of the cast are awful, especially the brother and his wife. What were they thinking when they made this!
