The acting is good though. I guess. Or maybe it is just that in general, I can't get enough Alfred Molina. It looks good too. Or maybe I just love the setting of 1961 London. The first 2/3 of the film held my attention if nothing else but the last 1/3 is so stupid and so poorly written that it ruins the whole thing.
It was nice to see Olivia Williams again though - again in the role of a teacher.
I tired to convince Mitch not to see it but he saw it anyway. His take?
I hated it. creeped me out the whole time and the main actress reminded me of a British Katie Holmes. Emma Thompson was so over the top it seemed like she was in an "SNL" sketch. Overall, it was like a pedophilia-infused "Pretty Woman" with a British accent and a little bit of "" thrown in for good measure.Directed by Lone Scherfig
