So and so watchable flick.. Especially the star of Downton..
24 September 2012
Conclusion: Jessica Findlay Brown, who is starting to make a name for herself by shining in Downton Abbey is a truly sensational young actress who people should certainly keep an eye on, give it a few years and she'll be everywhere I suspect. Albatross is a film which kind of reminded me of another British film of late, Tamara Drewe, the plot line of both ate very similar, but this film has a great drama and family aspect to it also, that's not to say it's not funny either because...
Conclusion: What a gripping film by way of storytelling related to complex relationships. Isle of Man - where it is set - looks stunning as it always does cinematically. Sebastian Koch and Felicity JOnes put in convincingly strong performances, but for me it is Jessica Brown Findlay who steals the show.
Conclusion: Niall MacCormick Directs a Stella cast in this much overlooked gem of a film. The film deals with a author who is living on his long past glory of a novel and a wife who is desperate for something else in her life as their marriage stagnates in a sleepy little guest house on the South coast of England.
