This beautifully drawn love story explores the bohemian underworld of war-torn London and the intimate complexities of two young couples whose lives and loves become dangerously intertwined.
Despite effective performances from Knightley and Miller, The Edge of Love lacks a coherent narrative.
The Edge of Love is literate and often lovely to look at, but unless you're requesting an off-key bohemian rhapsody, do not go gentle into that good theater.
For all its vivid evocation of its characters' tomorrow-we-die bonhomie, the film finally never quite convinces viewers of its central subject: the sisterly, almost sapphic bond between Vera and Caitlin.
[Knightley & Miller] frolicking on the beach ... could easily be a couple of models from a Boden fashion shoot at play.
The Edge of Love holds a lot of promise in its first hour and never completely falls apart, but it's ultimately not the movie it might have been.
The movie makes for an engaging enough period piece.
Despite the supposed passion that such material should inspire, what is presented is an emotionally void "love" story, which features three cold, distant, and un-likeable characters.
This may be Knightley's first truly mature performance. Too bad it arrives wrapped in doggerel.
While Thomas fans will regret seeing their literary hero reduced to a generic drunk, even those awaiting the aforementioned bathtub scene will find it barely worth the effort.
When it's over...we have to wonder why any of it mattered in the first place.
