Goofs

There is a jar of Marmite (a savoury spread popular in the UK) on a shelf in the kitchen. It alternates between two orientations: it is side-on when Bill Nighy is in close-up but when Annette Bening is also in view the back of the jar is turned to the camera. See more »

Quotes

Grace: Tell him, Edward.
Edward: Tell him what?
Grace: That God exists.
Edward: You can't tell people a thing like that. God is not information. God's a conviction. It's like love. You don't tell love, you feel love.

User Reviews

Pretty powerful
29 April 2020 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

The plot is pretty powerful. It tells how a woman is in denial about her marriage. Annette Bening just delivers a wonderful performance that makes you care about her. The scenery of coastal Britain is very beautiful too. This film is a good watch.
