Rory is an ambitious entrepreneur who brings his American wife and kids to his native country, England, to explore new business opportunities. After abandoning the sanctuary of their safe American suburban surroundings, the family is plunged into the despair of an archaic '80s Britain and their unaffordable new life in an English manor house threatens to destroy the family.Written by
I liked this movie, but as at least one other reviewer has pointed out, it doesn't really go anywhere. Which maybe is the state of many unhappy marriages, as that seems to be what the movie is trying to portray. The acting is amazing and while a bit slow at many points, I was pretty engaged in the story. However, unless you've lived the hopelessness of a failing marriage and the unmet promises inherent to one, I think it might be difficult to find much to relate to in the movie.
