    My husband & I totally disagree with the two above reviews. We love most British movies, but this one was totally BOARING. After sitting through it for what seemed an eternity, we left the movie. Perhaps it got better, but we could not endure longer. Linda in Plano

    Great film, well written, well acted, well edited. And it brings back an embarrassing issue for the U.S. We still don't have equal pay for equal work! And England had it over 40 years ago! It's hard to describe what happens to a relationship when a person begins to fight for fairness in a system that the other member supports; the movie did a good job of showing this journey, and this marriage survived; many others from the 60's did not.
