Movie Info

It all starts simply enough. Schoolteacher Jean Travers (Vanessa Redgrave) invites some friends over for a dinner party. The evening concludes. The next day, one of the guests, a mysterious young man (Tim McInnerny) whom she had assumed was invited by one of her friends, returns to her doorstep. She fixes tea; he kills himself in front of her. As the police investigate the dead man's life, Jean begins to obsess over an ill-fated love affair in her own past.

  • The skill of Hare's approach is that he initially allows us to assume, via normal cinema techniques, that what we saw of the dinner party was the whole story.

  • Redgrave's performance is superb and she's ably supported by Holm, Dench, and Hamilton in particular.

  • Mr. Hare has assembled a superb cast, and its ensemble work is very fine.

  • A haunting film, because it dares to suggest that the death of the stranger is important to everyone it touches - because it forces them to decide how alive they really are.

  • [An] arch, overstyled downer ...

  • Where it succeeds is in the extraordinarily brilliant casting and the handling of the shifts from past to present. Where it is less fluent, perhaps, is in the statement of a case.

Audience Reviews for Wetherby

    An interesting build up and retracing of the steps leading up to the tragedy. This film however suffers from dull hanging in periods of tepid dialogue and useless plot development. Partially saved by solid acting, it nonetheless is not particularly memorable.

    Exceptional cast in dark gloomy drama that moves at a glacial pace. The actors can't be faulted but it's a bit of a slog.
