It's Daniel Day Lewis, taut, intelligent, erotic, who is an emerging star.

Fast, bold, harsh and primitive like a prodigious student film with equal parts promise and threat.

This is a uniquely plausible portrait of life in England, yet its appeal isn't limited to social realism -- it also has a twist of buoyant fantasy and romance
