Review: Is she bemused or calculating. Is the veil to protect herself from unwanted attention or to hide her intentions. The poster’s still a bit too simple for selling the film, but there are just enough interesting questions that can be asked about it.

Trailer Rating: B+

Review: This Edwardian thriller exists in a separate plane from all other dramas of the same period. It looks fascinating even if modestly predictable.

Oscar Prospects:

While the film looks like it could be a competitor in the Production Design and Costume Design categories and Rachel Weisz could be a surprise acting nominee, but the July release won’t get it as much year-end attention as it needs.
