Despite good acting from the two pairs, viewers expecting illuminating insights about the literary genius, eccentric philosophy and complex sexuality of Iris Murdoch will be disappointed by Richard Eyre's minor, rambling, TV-like film.

Some films, like some people, grow more dear to one's heart with time. Iris is such a film.

Love endures. That's perhaps the most important lesson to be learned in this unconventional love story.

Romantic - not of finding, but of knowing...the longer journey of being in love together, and living through what they experience.

Structurally, this is a cumbersome, unbalanced film, but it is brilliantly acted.

When the film tried to put something in about her work, it failed to do it with any cohesion.

you almost get the feeling she copulated with the lads to get nearer their minds and with the gals for the sheer fun of it.

The film is about the power of the mind and the tragedy of losing it, but it is also a very moving love story, played with heartbreaking sincerity by Broadbent.

[Winslet] is so utterly, fearlessly winning that she peels the arrogance off Iris, makes her shine with life strength.
