I saw this movie ages ago (no pun intended) in the movie theatre when my husband and I had just started dating and I found it a little hard to follow but a beautiful film nonetheless. I just finished watching it for the first time in years and I loved it even more. The storyline is now easier to follow and is somewhat heartbreaking. All of the performances were amazing, especially Daniel Day Lewis. I liked his pairing with Winona Ryder and with Michelle Pfeiffer. The costumes were absolutely beautiful and the scenery is stunning. I haven't yet read the book and I'm curious to see how closely this movie is to the storyline but in terms of seeing it by itself, it's a wonderful film.
