I think three stars is generous
15 January 2019 | by georgiasunflowerSee all my reviews

I wanted to watch this movie and I sat their with excitement wanting it to be worth it. The cast was amazing, all incredibly talented which is why it was sad to watch all of that talent waste into nothing. I must admit I have not read the original work so I will not critique the story, but this adaptation of it was boring, listless and never went anywhere. I felt like I got on a train, road through beautiful country, but ended up exiting at the exact spot from where I had entered. Not much happened though I was constantly on the edge of my seat anticipating something. This was very much a wasted hour and a half.
