Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
Started off quite strong, then quickly passed into the realm of the clique
The judicial issue is simply the premise for the well-balanced examination of the boy's fixation on the judge, which opens even deeper issues; Emma Thompson delivers another mainificent performance.
The intelligent themes of the film, combined with fantastic acting and generally good script, result in a movie that's a welcome break from the summer's other unnuanced releases. Also provides an attractive portrayal of upper-middle class London living.
Touching and powerful
I found it impossible to suspend disbelief wrt to each and every character and their motivations. People, including eminent judges, just don't act that way.
A film that will make you sit back for a good hour and really think through it all. There are no clear cut answers in this film of what should have happened, no black and white (good or bad) characters just lots of shades of grey. It's realistic of how people can be and how we are all human in our decisions.
Thompson pulls off a incredibly believable performance in a drama that is built on so many facets of her life --- original storyline
A very lovely movie, Emma Thompson is really brilliant.
Emma Thompson owns this film with a stellar performance but the key relationship with the young man in poorly constructed. While I enjoyed the book more the film deserves praise for tackling such difficult questions in a confronting way.
This film deals with a compelling, serious issue, and some of the characters are interesting stand-ins for modern, upper-class citizens but it just wasnâ(TM)t that great. Sorry.
