    ★★½

    I have to talk about my love/hate relationship with this movie.

    The good points are the costume and set design, cinematography, Gary Oldman (who is really surprised though?) and Anthony Hopkins. Oldman and Hopkins took the crappiest script ever written and actually worked with it.
