3.0 out of 5 stars
Not sure is she needs therapy or I do after watching..., 18 Mar 2014
Firstly I understand this is a play of it's time but if you're a woman with any kind of modern or feminist principles then for gods sake steer clear. Within 30 minutes i'm afraid I really wanted to give Hester (Rachel Weisz) a thorough shaking and/or a good old fashioned talking too. The acting is sublime however especially Rachel Weisz, and Tom Hiddleston gave a remarkably convincing performance as the tantrum throwing, self interested lover (I should know I once dated someone with the same flawed characteristics. What a nightmare!) Ladies don't watch if you've recently suffered a break up, in fact, though I've given it 3 stars, mainly for the first rate acting performances, i'd save your money if I were you.
