Romantic period piece about two literature scholars (Gwyneth Paltrow and Aaron Eckhart) who end up falling for each other as they investigate a Victorian-era poet's (Jeremy Northam) secret extramarital affair with a lesser-known poet (Jennifer Ehle). Floating back and forth between present-day England and the Victorian age, director Neil LaBute's film has gorgeous countryside vistas and a dreamy, flirty quality, but despite the emphasis on love, the inclusion of an out-of-wedlock child and a lesbian relationship may nonetheless be off-putting. An extramarital affair, a sexual encounter, a lesbian relationship, a suicide and fleeting crass language and profanity. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
