The Golden Bowl Reviews
Having said that the movie was generally well done, with the exception of Uma Thurman's costumes as Charlotte which made her considerably more the scheming floosie, than the wallflower abandoned by her poor lover.
(2000) The Golden Bowl
From the makers of Ivory and Merchant who were responsible for time period films such as "Howard's End", "Remains of the Day" and "Room Without A View"! This is yet another time period film with the set up, the Uma Thurman character marrying a much older fella so that she can be near a much younger male person (closer to her age) whose commited to be engaged to the daughter of the older fella (Nick Nolte). Long film with a satisfying conclusion! The problem with this film is that with it's running time of more than two hours is too long for some to even care about this love triangle! To generally sum up this film is, mature adults handling mature situations without the need for unnecessary physical violence for it demands a viewer's patience! Good but not great!
