Review Effie Gray :

Quite slow and boring in parts. 3/10

Review: I couldn't really get into this film because I found it really slow and quite boring. It's about a girl who marries a man who doesn't give her any attention or show her any love. They also live with the man's parents who crave for there son to become famous from his painting's so he's under a lot of pressure which he takes out on his wife. As she is a strong willed woman who soon realises that her marriage is a total disaster, she seeks help from Emma Thompson who also was in a troubled marriage but it eventually worked itself out. Personally I found it to be a sad and depressing period drama which is one toned, without much substance. Don't get me wrong, it is about a touching subject which is played very well by Dakota Fanning but I just didn't find it entertaining. There isn't any memorable scenes which made the movie upbeat or switch pace so I honestly can't say that I enjoyed it. On the plus side, the costumes and scenery was OK but I'm not a big fan of period dramas so I can't say that I'll be watching it again any time soon. Pretty Boring!

Round-Up: The only reason why I gave this movie a go was because I saw that Emma Thompson made it and Dakota Fanning has made a name for herself but I was quite disappointed with the outcome. From a young age, I've been very impressed with Fanning and her roles in Man On Fire, War Of The Worlds and the Secret Life's Of Bees and at the young age of 21, she has really accomplished a lot. I just hope that she doesn't start going downhill because of the lack of good scripts coming out of Hollywood nowadays. After seeing a few interviews with Emma Thompson recently, I really like her sense of humour and her upbeat look on life. That's why I was expecting something with a bit of a punch from this movie but she was obviously trying to stay true to the book. I liked her scenes with Fanning and she did show emotion to her situation. I also liked the chemistry between Thompson and Edward Fox, who still looks good at 77 and Julie Walters and David Suchet also played there roles well. In all, its just another English period drama which portrays a time when women didn't have much say in there relationships.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their period dramas about a young woman who gets married to a man who doesn't know how to show love or affection. 3/10
