I have read the amazing book that this film is based on and I was really looking forward to seeing the adaptation on the big screen. I am glad to say that the film was good and I had a wonderful time watching it. I found the film to be gripping, engrossing and very sad but beautiful in the same time, I was truly enchanted by this film. Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman do an amazing job with their roles, they definitely elevate this film and it was a real pleasure to watch them act together. Even though the film was quite sad, I also found it to be redemptive in spirit and I immensely enjoyed the message about the power of forgiveness. Overall, it is a powerful film that will move you and I highly recommend seeing it on the big screen.
