From the director Anthony Minghella comes an emotional and thought-provoking modern drama set against the backdrop of London's ever-changing landscape. Will, a successful landscape architect, is on the brink of the most ambitious project of his career when he is suddenly pulled into a world he knows nothing about-and a mistake he can't erase. Featuring an award-winning cast led by Jude Law, Juliette Binoche, Robin Wright Penn, Martin Freeman and Ray Winstone, this passionate journey proves that some things must be broken before they can be fixed.
Good British drama

2 architects have set up a new business in King's Cross. A local gang, run by Bosnians, are carrying out burglaries in the area and Will, played by Jude Law, becomes involved with one of the families. This is a good human interest story with a superb cast. Juliette Binoche is particularly good as the Bosnian single mother struggling to bring up her son and teach him right from wrong. The film looks into Will's relationship and examines possible reasons for the problems that exist.
Souless and boring

A real bumbling middle class impression of gritty real life, where the hookers are jolly, refugee bad boys take up yuppie sport parkour to pass the time rather than hanging outside of McDs and the architect and his wife in their Primrose Hill dwelling are the only ones with real problems. Jude Law acts totally within his element (cheating, slithering pretty boy)Robin Wright-Penn gives her characer all the life-force sucking dullness that would force anyone cheat on her and I couldn't make out a word Juliette Binoche was saying which made no real difference. I watched it whilst recovering from norovirus, but it just brought back that sick feeling.
Maybe its just me, and that I just don;t like these 'modern' films, but what a snooze fest. Thought Jude Law, (usually lurverly) was sleezy and fake, nothing happened, at the end of the film, I just watched the credits for a bit, thinking maybe I had fallen asleep and missed the main bit of the film, but no, that was all there was!!
Not for me, but maybe I am just showing my old fashionedness!!!!!! (not that old though!)
