Drama, Romance
As a filmmaker, Terence Davies has made a series of nostalgic, almost poetic personal projects (The Neon Bible; Distant Voices, Still Lives) whose visual splendor matches the underlying emotional currents. In this adaptation of playwright Terence Ratigan’s soapy tale of a young woman’s (Rachel Weisz) romantic indecision in post-WWII London, however, director Davies’ vaunted style is not enough. Weisz’ Hester Collyer can’t make up her mind between a rich, boring, old judge (Simon Russell Beale) and an abusive but charming ex-RAF pilot (Tom Hiddleston) — and her suffering passes from pathetic to annoying in record time, despite Davies’ sympathies. For what it’s worth, though, the dreary parts of London get the full Davies treatment. Rattigan’s play was filmed before, in 1955, with Vivien Leigh and Kenneth More under the direction of Anatole Litvak. (98 min.)
