Phenomenal performances from Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes
There are so many really good things about this movie, such a great piece of story telling.
The cast is excellent and all put in great performances, especially Lily James and Ralph Fiennes.
It's not just about an archaeological dig though, it's about past lives, present lives and how things are remembered in the future.
There are also several strands to the relationships between all invloved too, including working relationships, family relationships, class and secret relationships.
I don't know how much of the story is fiction or fact but it is well told either way. All this set with a backdrop of the coming second world war.
I am lucky enough to have seen the Sutton Hoo treasures at the British Museum and have always been keenly interested in archeology so this film based on the true story of this discovery was right up my street.
