    When it focuses on the titular dig the movie can often be quite moving, I just wish that the superfluous elements, which eat up a huge portion of the runtime, were as focused and nuanced.

    If I was an archeologist I would've loved The Dig. But I'm not, and while it is beautifully filmed, the movie is overstuffed with too many simultaneous character dramas, world events and museum intrigue. But I may be falling in love with Carey Mulligan. After her spunky performance in Promising Young Woman, she is fantastic again as a sickly and pensive wealthy landowner. If you're a fan of English period pieces, warts and all, this is for you.

    I can't honestly say that the premise of this film grabbed my attention but I was pleasantly surprised by the end results. Held together by two very well pitched performances from Carey Mulligan and, especially, Ralph Fiennes, The Dig is a somber and affecting true story juggling the themes of past, present and future. It's oddly captivating and, in all honesty, quite entertaining.
