Critic Reviews for The Heart of Me
How, one wonders, do movies like this still get made? Does everyone just turn up one day, and refuse to go home until a cameraman arrives?
The Heart of Me, inspired by Rosamund Lehmann's anguished classic The Echoing Grove, is a costume drama that wants to be more than the sum of its wardrobe.
O'Sullivan is not a director of great visual flamboyance, but he draws out here performances of subtle and complex shading.
While far from the gold standard of The Remains of the Day, it presses all the appropriate buttons.
Audience Reviews for The Heart of Me
Great movie! Fantastic story plot. Amazing actors!
[font=Century Gothic][color=darkred]"The Heart of Me" starts in 1934 in a well-to-do household in London. Madeleine(Olivia Williams) is constantly worrying about the marriage prospects for her bohemian sister, Dinah(Helena Bonham Carter). Getting Dinah married has been a lot of trouble for Madeleine. Little does she suspect that the reason for this, is that Dinah is having an affair with Madeleine's husband, Rickie(Paul Bettany). The moral of the movie is that having an affair with your sister-in-law can be a lot of fun, until somebody gets pregnant. "The Heart of Me" is not that interesting with a good cast wasted playing types more than anythingelse. A flash forward to 1946 is awkward in giving away some of the story while cheating in other ways.[/color][/font]
