Now a new film of the play appears, adapted and directed by Terence Davies with Rachel Weisz in that stellar [Hester Collyer] role and with Rattigan's work in a freshening treatment.

The movie is an exquisite period piece, slow and dank, and unduly persuaded that it's rendering a classic.

[Weisz'] performance that transforms her from actress to movie star.

The best parts of the movie, like the scene with William's mother, involve isolated set pieces in which Weisz interacts with another actor.

A story of passion and its aftermath; of what happens when an unhappy woman goes chasing after something shiny, only to find how quickly it fades.
