Wow, what a brilliant film. Well we enjoyed it anyway last night at the cinema.
Luckily I had not read this book, although it topped many bestseller lists when it came out, so I did not know the twist in the ending. Indeed I would say this is definitely one occasion when watching the film first is preferable to reading the book first.
Emily Blunt is a brilliant actress and she really IS the character she plays, dowdy clothes, alcohol dulled skin, bloodshot eyes etc. The only time you see her as the pretty actress she really is, is in the final few scenes of the film.
Highly recommended viewing.
