    Outstanding, excellent film & cast. Phoenix rivals Brando, Paltrow is simply excellent. Very pure, very true, intelligent & sensitive film. I would see it again.

    Ok.. I get that his acting was sensitive and the physical chemistry interesting..but the movie was slow moving, and a bit of a yawn. He mumbled and we just didn't enjoy watching this film.
