I shall try to be as fair about this as possible. I don't hate this film entirely (I'd rather sit through this than Avatar) but it's not a classic either. The things that I like - the love story is effective, (though it's obviously heightened a good bit by the inevitable tragedy) most of the technical film-making work is good, the whole upper class malaise with life thread being done right. The things I do not like - The soundtrack, most of the key "iconic" moments, the film is too overlong and it's cheesy sense of self-importance. Still, could be worse. Could be Jack and Jill.
