Actors; Helena Bonham Carter, Linus Roache, Alex Jennings and Alison Elliott.
Opinion; A beautiful film about how love isn’t always smooth sailing but extremely complicated. When Kate moves in with her aunt she is forced to stop seeing the man she loves and plans to marry. A triangle starts when Kate meets rich American Milly and they soon become inseparable but Milly has fallen for the man Kate loves. The story seems to go back and forth from Kate and Merton Densher to Milly and Kate then to Milly and Merton and back again but don’t let that put you off because its still quite an easy watch. I will not comment of Helena’s perfomance in this because there are only so many times you can express how flawless somebody is before it starts to loose meaning but she was! Alison Elliott too performed superbly and both female leads made the film completely compelling to watch.
Recommend to; This film is suited for people who enjoy period drama’s set in the late victorian era, people should probably stay away if they are a little prudish as there are some “scenes of a sexual nature.”
