From the trailer I thought this was going to be one of those English type dramas that I love so much. I like Keira Knightly generally and was looking forward to a good drama. Was I disappointed to find this is the story of a couple of people who were talented but rather seedy characters. What is talent without character? Nothing, imo. Had I known the storyline, I would have definitely passed this one up. It's a DVD rental if even that. Bottomline the trailer was misleading, therefore it's on me that I didn't look further into this story before going to the movies.
