Over the top - The Shipping News review by JD

Spoiler Alert
17/10/2013

Although this is a pretty good plot everything feels excessive. The characters are all extreme. Spacey's character is extremely pathetic and Blanchett's extremely hedonistic, the reaction of the islanders to the departure of a visitor is wildly extreme and the effect of the wind on a house unbelievable. Talking of which Dench's accent is so variable as to be amusing. The returning from the dead scene is stretching credulity to beyond breaking point. Essentially poor direction but quite enjoyable.
