  • A funny and touching film that is gorgeously acted by a British cast to rival Gosford Park's. show more

  • If truth be told, the film is less than the sum of its parts; the main problem is the fragmented narrative structure, a legacy of the literary source. Still, it's a joy to see men and women with dense life stories played by powerful actors with long and distinguished careers. show more

  • A superb film that begins with death, ends in renewal, and finds almost as much to laugh about as to cry for. show more
