Virginia Nicholson, the great-niece of Virginia Woolf, took issue with this movie for several different reasons. They ranged from the heights of the two main actors (Elizabeth Debicki towers over Gemma Arterton, whereas in real life, Vita was the taller of the pair), to their dining habits (they would never eat in the kitchen), to the depiction of Virginia Woolf as a "mad prodigy, trembling with hypersensitivity," when she was actually pretty fun.

The characters speak in cryptic tongues, and I just don't understand the story. Everything else is beautiful from the sets to the costumes. Too bad I just cannot connect with the main characters at all.
