Though handsomely photographed and featuring a compelling cast, the Ireland-set memory piece ... will leave audiences wondering how much more satisfying the muted drama might be on the page.

The film can't match the novel's elegant, startlingly excellent Booker-Prize-winning writing, but the cast is first-class.

This good, middlebrow adaptation ... sacrifices much of the novel's structural intricacy for Masterpiece-style emotional accessibility.
