  3. Will Carnes's rating of the film The Astonished Heart

    Not exactly Coward's best play (and I've never terribly enjoyed his acting either), but worth a watch, as everything he wrote is. BRIEF ENCOUNTER is still his best. When will someone adapt PRIVATE LIVES in a halfway decent manner?

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Astonished Heart

    A modest exercise in restraint and stoicism in the face of largely buttoned-up emotions. Most of the psychological ramifications are muted, but the playing of Johnson and Leighton remains crisp and nuanced. It lacks the focused charge of the earlier Brief Encounter, but is a decent enough nugget that avoids histrionics and ends on a pleasingly dour and tragic finale.
