this movie was so sweet, redeeming and lovely.
never mind the fact that i am a severe sucker for a British accent...
i'm sure that had nothing to do with it. ;)
this movie was not entirely clean, pg-13,
(with brief nudity, some swearing, a little blood, drinking. but i believe the message of redemption, the emptiness of certain life styles, etc, balanced the yuckiness.)
it was a bittersweet love story, with beautiful, sweeping scope.
anne hathawaty was her usual delightful self, and the lead male actor, jim sturgess, was wonderful. i'll certainly be looking for more of him, as i've only seen one other of his films.
if you are renting a movie, especially if you like any foreign films (this is all in English, it just has that distinctly British filmaking flavor to it), be sure to see it!
