The problem is this: We're given no reason to care about these two yearning hearts. Our only evidence of their love is a garish display of hormones.

Visually stunning? Absolutely! But I found the film's plodding pace relentlessly annoying.

This may be the most accessible James adaptation to date, as well as among the most beautiful.

Simply a film that did not rub me at all, much less the wrong way.

almost a sort of turn-of-the-century 'Indecent Proposal'... But though the eloquent screenplay brings to the surface the eroticism James only hinted at, it doesn't neglect the fascinating psychology of the characters...

Bonham Carter never allows the audience to lose the feeling that Kate truly does care about Milly--it's just that she cares about herself even more.
