It pains me to see Aidan Quinn in supporting roles, like 'Elementary'. I would go out of my way to see him. This movie is helped by the lovely presence of Beckinsale. Lovely, lovely. John Gielgud makes an appearance, which lends it even more class. Normally I hate costume dramas, but it just was done really well. Yes, the plot leaves something to be desired, but it is a pleasant diversion.
