In a world where everybody constantly jockeys for attention, it's hard not to respect a movie that chooses substance over showmanship at every turn.

The perfect backdrop for human drama...

Well-made, well-acted but super boring...I liked the movie, I actually dug it, but it's slow and gentle and not much happens...

a superbly crafted slice of British life with a heaping helping of history thrown in for good measure

The Dig may be little more than motion picture comfort food... but right now comfort food is what we want.

Sometimes a bit of heart-warming movie magic is enough, and it's enough for The Dig.

If you're an archeological history buff, you're in for a treat

If the film feels like a perhaps prettified version of real events, its underlying ideas give us something to chew on.

If one doesn't demand full factual accuracy, 'The Dig' represents an emotionally affecting, and beautifully made, account of one of the last century's most significant archaeological events.

It's a beautiful, surprisingly graceful story of how we remember, and how we are remembered.

A beautiful looking film with excellent performances from Mulligan, Fiennes and Barnes, let down by a strange disconnection from the history, and too much time away from the main story.

[Australian director Simon Stone] makes archeology fascinating, thanks in large part to an economical script and understated performances.

It's remarkably moving. By Jupiter, I even cried by the end.

[W]ell-executed costume drama...speaks low and moves slow. Subtle and judicious with its charms, the film won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if it is yours, well ... you'll dig The Dig.

"The Dig" is an exhilarating reenactment of a historical coastal English countryside dig with heartfelt performances by all.

Not a lot happens in The Dig,but that's hardly the point. With beautiful visuals and terrific performances, the film evokes a simpler yet moving style of movie that wouldn't be out of place in the Merchant Ivory catalogue.

Stone has ample opportunity to turn this all into a mawkish nightmare, but thankfully he resists.

Carey Mulligan & Ralph Fiennes star in this solid, satisfying drama about the greatest, early medieval treasure ever unearthed in the United Kingdom.

It's detailed and appropriately somber all while giving us a mostly accurate close look at archaeologists in action. But it's also a meditation on legacy and the human experience, one that will leave you reflecting for days to come.

A stately English drama in a lot of ways, and yet whenever you think it's going to zig it sort of zags. Interested in the past and how it works its way into the future. One to watch.
