Wonderful film. I would have rated it a 10 if it weren't for the forced racial diversity. It seems British films nowadays have to meet a certain quota of Asian and African actors to get approved, no matter how insignificant that ethnic diversity is to the story.____ Anyway, this is a must-watch picture.. Solid script by Nicholson, great performances by Bening and Nighy, beautiful cinematography by Valdez-Hanks. Don't miss it.
