I actually watched this a while ago, it was my Netflix a couple of movies ago.  This movie wasn’t quite what I expected either.  It was very well acted though, and I did find it interesting.  It was also rather sad.  So while not what I expected, I still enjoyed it.  I like Keira Knightley and James McAvoy, their parts were very well acted. 

The way the story was told in the movie was also interesting.  We’d see things happen through the viewpoint of one character, who would then interpret it accordingly.  Later we would get to see the actual event, and understand why the character’s interpretation was so important. 

I think this is the kind of movie you have to be in the mood for. It’s not major action, it’s not all that fast paced, but it does tell a story and I think it does it well.
