"This film did do justice to the book by casting such good actors but did not even begin to capture the really excellently depicted narrative and writing. Dench was so strong in her part she somewhat skewed and unbalanced the film's dynamics so that Sheba Hart the art teacher and Connolly the boy she has an affair with who are at the dead centre of the novel get marginalised and pushed sideways.I thought that Blanchet as good as she is does not really capture the part and comes across a liitle lacklustre. Andrew Simpson as Connolly does not for one minute make you believe he could seduce an adult woman. There's also some sense of programmed automatism in the way the story is played out.So althiugh I liked it,it was not the book I read."
