Rhys-Meyers did not fit the part. It was like he was reading the script the entire movie. Such a shallow character. Strange movie; not worth watching.

No subtitles.

This is the worst movie I've seen in quite some time. It was executive-produced by the principals, so that was a warning that it's a pure vanity piece. But Rhys-Meyers' abysmal acting skills manage to bring down the mother-daughter duo of Redgrave-Richardson, who deserve better. It was so clumsily and sophomorically put together, that you might convince yourself you're watching a poorly-executed art student film. You'll be stunned.

This movie was boring and slow. I felt I was wasting my time.
