Page Eight

This slow-burning dramatic “thriller” was enjoyable from beginning to end.  I use the term loosely as the film really didn’t give you too much at the beginning and then slowly began to unfold the story.  The story/drama almost felt secondary to the character study that the movie became.  The movie may have lost a bit of steam once some of the mystery was resolved but I still enjoyed it.  In a sense the pacing reminded me a bit little bit of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.  Bill Nighy is always amazing.
