I enjoyed the film but it was quite slow and felt like a mish -mash of storylines and themes crammed together at the end. Great acting and the characters were quite engaging.

The movie, even at two-and-a-half hours long, can’t fit in as much as does the 800-page novel, forcing director John Crowley and screenwriter Peter Straughan to pare down a bit on details, characters, and plot.

The film suffers from both an excessive faithfulness to its source and a general failure to translate that material into anything close to a gripping onscreen narrative.

In the end, there’s too much good stuff missing and yet not enough to serve as a satisfying meal.
