Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tara Road (2005) [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD because I love the book, however there was nothing about this film I enjoyed. Apart from Andie McDowell the casting was badly done and the acting not much better. If you are a fan of Maeve Binchy then I do not think you will enjoy this adaptation. For instance Danny is meant to be handsome, charming and charismatic - he failed on all points. Rosemary is meant to be a glamorous, self assured, well groomed etc. She failed on all accounts. The film starts at the time when the marriage between Danny and Ria is ending, this gives you no opportunity to get to know the characters or why the house in Tara Road means so much to Rhea.It makes it difficult to emphasise with the characters and it makes it difficult to understand why Ria would even want Danny back in her life.
