Charlie Derry’s review:
This was one of my most anticipated films of this year and whilst I'm still yet to read the novel it is based on, I wasn't completely satisfied but it was still a good watch. The cinematography is stunning, and for as far as I can comment I found that the casting worked well too. The lead males, especially Sturridge, had a strong, and very homoerotic, chemistry, whilst Stewart, who I am a fan of anyway, gave something more than her morbid expression that many often criticise her for. It felt a little empty in places but it was an adventure I enjoyed going along with. And now I want to go travelling, but whilst I save up money I'm going to go read the book.
