Ethan Hawke was really great!
Fantastic work and retelling of the classic novel by Alfonso Cuarón. Seductive, touching and powerful. Maybe not his best movie but sure an enduring one! It deserved a lot more credit and viewers.
Good story overall, but, I'm not sure that I enjoyed this version
Poor adaptation of the legendary novel, though performances all around were excellent. De Niro and Baxter deliver one of the best of their carreers and Paltrow gave a stunning performance as the ethereally beautiful, but ice cold Estella.
Good film, great at times
There is something captivating in this film that fails to overcome the depth-lacking screenplay
The story progresses without feeling anything for the characters or the characters seem to feel nothing for themselves and the human relations presented in the film lack the depth to which the film itself aspires.
Pretentious and ambitious but lack of what it pretends and ambitions.
Could have been better if they didn't tamper the story - especially the ending...
This is two hours of fantasy, and a very good film. Hawke. Paltrow, Bancroft, DeNiro and Collins are all great, but the prizes go to the story and the director for creating a world that draws us in and that we want more of, even and especially at the end.
Saw this on 14/9/16
What makes this watchable is relationship between Hawke's character with that of De Niro's and Chris Cooper while the love story lacks depth and emotion. Gwyneth Paltrow's character lacks depth and the ending is bad. however, Cuaron's direction and the music makes it enjoyable.
Too many coincidences but what the hell
