"A calm movie, interesting, but not super memorable if I'm honest. I didn't even remember I saw it until likewise recommended it to me. I guess they were right to. Good for if you're wanting to watch a movie alone during the day - and I dont mean this as a diss at all, this is just the kind I like to watch on a spring day. "
"A small quiet film."
"Beautiful movie. Based on a book that is based on a true story. The writer took a poetic license on some fact, weaving actual events into a touching tale about fragility of human life , of our state of being, the fleeting nature of everything that ever happens in the face of history and Time. Very well done. #history #england #archeology"
"7/10. What started out as a very promising historic biopic, just seems to go sideways as the main characters give way to a young couple that split into both a heterosexual and homosexual trysts for no apparent reason, completely unrelated to the history of the Sutton Hoo discovery. Ralph Fiennes is excellent as the protagonist."
"Loved this movie! It was everything I thought it would be! Fantastic Cast! I love Ralph F. He never disappoints me! "
"This is a period drama that has something to say about classism along the way to revealing a forgotten historical figure. It's a quiet film that never roars, which may make it feel slow to young folk. Everything unfolds in a very direct way that grants no surprises. That said, it is a good film. It's just not a great film."
