The Edge of Love Reviews
Before Seeing: The movie that nearly crippled "Brothers & Sisters"! Thanks a lot, Miller!!! >:(
This was a very well acted film; even Keira Knightley really surprised me. Usually she can't act for toffee and appears in the same corset dramas and puts on the same pouty expression and hoity toity voice. Keira Knightley put on a very good Welsh accent and was actually very good. Sienna Miller wasn't bad either. The film is about a woman called Vera Phillips (played by Knightley), who bumps into her former love, poet Dylan Thomas (Matthew Rhys- though his acting wasnt that impressive) and strikes up a friendship with him and his wife Caitlin (Sienna Miller), however old feelings bubble up to the surface between Dylan and Vera, much to the jealousy of Vera's love interest, soldier William. However I really didn't think there was that much going on between Vera and Thomas and there wasnt much chemistry. However the film portrayed Caitlin and Dylan's tempestuous relationship very well. I think the film focused too much on Caitlin and Vera (and a possible lesbian relationship between them is implied) so I found it a bit less interesting. On the whole it wasn't a bad film, not the best wartime flick I've seen, but its OK.
The film itself is fairly disappointing, but perhaps worth watching for the moments when everything comes together because when this happens the film is stunning.
