Absolutely beautiful movie

Although I loved the book more, i thought this movie was so lovingly taken care of by director Joe Wright. He has a clear vision for beauty that evident clear in the "Elegy for Dunkirk" scene. Over two in a half minutes, and the camera never cuts. It pans around the area, exploring, revealing, and devastating the hearts of film-makers everywhere. James McAvoy delivers a stellar performance, and is sure to be at the top of Hollywood soon. After reading the book, and developing such a adoration and appreciation of Robbie's strength, passion, and commitment I can't imagine anyone doing him the justice as James McAvoy did for him in this film. Visually stunning, gut-wrenchingly romantic, and heart-breakingly tragic. A must-see in my opinion.

Didn't live up to the book

It was good. But not great. I normally like these types of movies, but it seems like this one just missed the mark. The cinematography is great, the costumes and sets are wonderful, the actors were well picked, but I felt like this book maybe just can't be translated in...

It dragged on which the book really didn't. Its worth seeing, but maybe not buying.

    Wow was this sad. But I'll admit the actors, especially the main leads did a good job. And that ending...wow.
