Perfect casting. - I Capture the Castle review by RhysH

Spoiler Alert
01/05/2018

The casting for this adaptation of Dodie Smith's 1948 novel is wonderful. Romola Garai is perfect as Cassandra, the right mix of naivety and worldly-wisdom. We know Bill Nighy can do charm and humour but here he dishes up angst and anger. To mention just two performances may be a disservice to the rest of this excellent cast.

The quality of the performances and Heidi Thomas's sparkling screenplay steers this film away from being a flimsy costume drama into a drama with bathos and genuine humour.
