Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

It’s nice to know you’re watching a Best Picture winner while you’re watching it. This won’t win the Oscar simply because it’s a melodramatic period drama from Miramax, it will win because it’s also an excellent film, beautifully photographed and richly detailed. Law and Kidman worked hard to maintain a bond during filming to make their passion seem real (it worked), but they mostly play out two separate storylines, and I had trouble deciding which was more interesting. Zellweger invaluably puts the relief in comic relief. Some may find this film too cold; I wasn’t moved, but I was impressed.
