Source: Catholic News Service
Emotionally complex period melodrama about a strait-laced Englishman (Paul Bettany) enmeshed in a love triangle with his repressed socialite wife (Olivia Williams) and her bohemian sister (Helena Bonham Carter). Despite nuanced performances, the film, directed by Thaddeus O'Sullivan, is weakened by a pervasive ambivalence regarding the immoral conduct of its characters, remedied somewhat by its underlying theme of forgiveness. Several sexual encounters with nudity and an ambivalent attitude toward adultery. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
