Entertainment Weekly
This genteel period piece invites a typically Mametian tension between its characters' stylized manners and their underlying motivations. Full Review
David Edelstein
Beat by beat, Mamet turns out an immaculately staged, crisply paced, and elegantly acted movie. It's also a tad bloodless, but you can't have everything. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Very English, very period and very polite. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Mamet's graceful, reverent movie adaptation moves along with a deliberating, almost hypnotic flow, strengthened by impeccable, dignified performances from Nigel Hawthorne, Rebecca Pidgeon and others. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
A study in unexpressed emotion, but Mamet turns the flame so low that his film lacks the emotional payoff we expect. Full Review
