Ambitious, Dated, Slow, Quirky

See it if You like period pieces with a talented cast trying to make sense of a rather confusing piece of writing.

Don't see it if You want something that is lighter, entertaining, and clearer in scope. Slow moving and boring at times. Actors did their best, though.
