Consensus: While it strains credibility and isn't ultimately as profound as it might first appear, Enduring Love is still an intriguing thriller fueled by strong performances from Rhys Ifans and Daniel Craig.

This film was slightly odd, in that there wasn't a great storyline, it's more about the events after a balloon crash and how it effects the main… More
