Consensus: A dull adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's novel despite gorgeous cinematography and Cate Blanchett's best efforts.

Bruce Westbrook
Houston Chronicle

The pace is so lethargic and the focus so diffuse that it's hard to get a fix on Charlotte beyond needless glamorization.

Steven Rosen
Denver Post

While Blanchett's presence is surely felt in virtually every scene of the movie, her acting isn't. We don't connect with her at all.

The Herald (Ireland)

There is velvety rich cinematography, an evocative score, beautiful period pieces and some captivating performances, but they fail to unite and do justice to the literary source.

Susan Stark

Mounts a romantic drama of the World War II era in mostly glossy, shallow terms.

Jay Boyar
Orlando Sentinel

This is Blanchett's film. Her quiet, detailed work leaves you wanting more.

Terry Lawson
Detroit Free Press

If this is melodrama, it's melodrama of a superior rank, and I salute it.

Connie Ogle
Miami Herald

Not a great work but wields powerful weapons in its director and its star.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie.

Such a different perspective on a war-time film, showing this through a strong woman?s eyes, in a man?s world. This story is essentially driven by love.… More
