    DiCaprio is in peak form, bringing layers of buried emotion to a defeated man. And the glorious Winslet defines what makes an actress great, blazing commitment to a character and the range to make every nuance felt. show more

    It's not quite up to the caliber of Richard Yates' novel, which is deeply nuanced and rich in subtext. But the performances are superb, and the film is beautifully shot. show more

    omg this movie was amazing! maybe it takes being married for a long time to really understand the strains a relationship can go through. . and the storyline was something people can relate to. the acting was amazing. but of course, not something youd watch if you're in the mood for guns and witty one liners. i've heard a lot of bad reviews on it but i really enjoyed it. you can never go wrong with kate winslet and leonardo di caprio.

    This movie is soooo horrible. It was very slow and boring. I saw people sleeping in the theater. the entire movie is based around how kate winslet's character is feeling and her character is moody and often annoying. What a waste of my time.
