After much anticipation from the released trailer, I couldn't wait to see the film in its entirety. Given the casting of well known actors, I was most attracted to the name of Nicole Kidman on the list. I thought about how unexpectedly fascinating I found Nicole Kidman's movies and could not wait to see what was interesting about this new one.
The trailer shows much promise as you can see:
Much to my dismay, this was one of those movies that showed much promise in the trailer and far less in delivery as a whole. I had hoped to start my weekend with something thrilling and ended up with something disappointing. I love Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, and have gotten a liking to Kirsten Dunst and Ella Fanning, but the thrill that I had hoped for was lacking.
If not for the detailed portrayal of life during this era, the angry scene of Colin Farrell, I would not have continued watching. It was far too long a build up to a scene that did not meet expectations. If not for wanting to watch how different living was in this era, I won't recommend that you see this film.
I rate it:
