I had heard mixed reviews about this movie but liking Baz Luhrmann and both leading actors I thought I’d give it a go and I wasn’t dissapointed. This is a truly beautiful epic movie with a moving storyline.
I wasn’t sure quite what to expect and have to admit for the first 10 minutes was a little confused a times but it soon became clear where the storyline was goind and once I was hooked I couldn’t stop watching. Started watching it a 9pm at night thinking I’d probably put it off half way through and then pick it up the following night but once I started watching I honestly didn’t want to turn it off. I kept waiting for a moment when the action would slow down but that just didn’t happen.
The acting is great – and this film shows a different side to writer and director Baz Luhrman which we haven’t seen before and I would add this now to my list of very favourite epic films of all time like Titanic, Gone With The Wind and Out of Africa.
