Goofs

When Johnny Worricker walks towards the ferry then off the ferry, he casually carries two cases of wine in his left arm. The wine alone would weigh approx 18Kg (40lbs) not to mention the bottles, but the ease with which he carries them suggests that the cases were empty. See more »

Quotes

Margot Tyrrell: You know him well?
Reverend Bernard Towers: I helped him through some difficult days. When he was a student, he loved the idea of faith, the life of the church. So, someone had to point out that he didn't actually believe.
Margot Tyrrell: And that was you. And he didn't.
Reverend Bernard Towers: No. He wanted to, more than anything, but sadly that's not the same thing.

still great albeit weakest of the trilogy
5 September 2018 | by galerlegalSee all my reviews

Probably the weakest of the trilogy as the plot is a bit convoluted and trite, but the dialogue is great and acting outstanding. Fiennes is delicious, Nighy continues his strong sensitive understated sensible full body performance. .
