a terribly underrated film. I love it so intensely.
The book is better, of course. Romola Garai was perfect as Cassandra. I wish they had more scenes between Cassandra and Stephen, reasons obvious.
This is a terrible movie. Two stars for the lovely castle interiors though!
I fell in love with Romola Garai and fell in lust with Henry Cavill.
(Marc Blucas, Henry Thomas, Rose Byrne and Bill Nighy ain't too shabby themselves.)
