Very interesting and a good film but let down a bit by modern parts
Based on a true story and a very interesting one at that. It is certainly surprising the way that a long dark past can suddenly come back to haunt an old lady, never judge a book by its cover.
The parts set way in the past were really interesting and certainly made the film. They were fascinating and very well portrayed.
Sadly I found the bits set in the modern times totally over dramatic, obvious and not well acted apart from Dame Judi Dench, to be honest it seemed they were only there to put her in the film to publicise it. A shame as it was a good film without those bits.
